How to Make a Cloth Grocery Bag : Cutting Fabric for Cloth Grocery Bag


Hi, I’m Candi Cane Canncel with Expert Village.
Now you want to cut out two of your side panels front and your back. For that one I’m going
to do is just fold this in half again I’m going to be cutting on the wrong side, make
sure I have enough. Then just go ahead and trace it the same way and for this project
I’m not going to add seam allowance because we’re just going to do a really thin seam
allowance. So your bag will be about a 1/4″ smaller all the way around than what your
pattern is. Once you have that traced you’re going to go ahead and cut it out of the fabric.
Once you have your front and back cut out then just go ahead and cut out your sides
and bottom pieces. Once you done this with your main fabric the next step is to do the
same exact thing with your lining fabric then we’re also going to be cutting out the pockets.

  1. Great resource… though confusing. Could you rename the videos with the numerical steps? I am using your pattern but using "cloth" made from fused grocery bags (another search here on youtube).
