Christmas Shopping Bag Tutorial

With just two weekends left before Christmas, I sure wish I had time to complete this gorgeous Christmas Shopping Bag. The detailed instructions with photos are fantastic. I would extend the handles several inches, as I prefer a bag that I can carry over my shoulder.
