A quick tutorial:
(A little sketchy, but if I want to make more someday, at least I can't lose the directions if they're posted here!)
Cut front and back of bags 14 x 11 inches.
Cut side/bottom piece at 8 x 39 inches.
Cut an inner-bottom piece at 10.5 x 8 inches and finish the edges on the two short sides with serger or by turning under 1/4 inch. Center on the longer piece, wrong sides together, and stitch together on the outer edges.
Cut two handle pieces, 2-1/2 inches x 22 inches. Fold, stitch long side and turn. Press and top-stitch 1/4 inch along each long side.
Stitch the bag pieces together with the 11-inch side as top/bottom.
Finish the top edge with serger or by turning under 1/4 inch. Then turn down another inch and top stitch down.
Attach bag handles.
Slide a 7.5 x 10 inch piece of plastic or cardboard between the two bottom pieces.
