Cloth Grocery Bag

I made a cloth grocery bag for my grandmother for Christmas using this tutorial on Craftster. 

I used a grey Woolies bag for the pattern, although this bag ended up a wee bit shorter because somehow I put a hole in the bottom of the lining so I had to make the french seam go a little higher to cover it.
 I opted to add some little tabs with velcro on to roll the bag up instead of making a pocket to fold it into.  My favourite cloth shopping bag is the one I can roll up :P
This fabric was picked after I held up a few options to my husband and said "Which one looks more like Nanny?"
And this is how it looks all rolled up.  Quite cute I think!
