Shopping Bag


One of my goals from Earth Day LAST YEAR (yikes!!!) was to make some reuseable shopping bags. I can't stand the plastic things. I used this pattern and some "vintage" fabric from my mom's stash. The only suggestion I have is to round the inner corners of the handles. I think it would make the bag stronger plus easier to overcast the raw edges. The bag turns out to be about the size of a regular plastic bag but I filled it with two 2-liters and 2 gatoraids and it seems to be strong enough.

That is really cute, Candy. I don't like those plastic things, either. I have been given some reusable shopping bags and forget to bring them half the time.When I get plastic bags, I do save them and use them as trashcan liners or other things, and recycle the rest at Walmart. Hugs all around and a special one for Hannah - Sarita
