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.
