Save The Earth Bag

A New Year calls for some new grocery bags!  I was out fabric shopping the other day and purchased several of these fabric panels.  Fun and bright bags to tote my groceries.  Fashionable AND “green.”  It’s a good day!

This bag took me about an hour to sew together and the sense that I am doing a good thing for our planet-priceless!   Remember way back to your childhood and you had a special coloring book that had tracing paper in between each page?  That is how I feel about these fabric panels.  I feel as if I am cheating.   I can just cut the bag and handles.  All the brains for this project was actually done for me.  Scissors and just cut ALONG the lines!  I think I will be going to the fabric store to see if they have more of these panels left…  If not, I will improvise!   I LOVE panels... I do!!  

 I actually lined the inside of this grocery bag with some beige denim I had in my stash to make it even sturdier!  I prewashed the fabrics as well-I wash my grocery bags and I do not want it to shrink the next time I do!

Now, to remember them EACH and every time I shop…. I do because I hate coming home with 30 plastic bags rolling around in the back of my car…

As my blog continues, you will probably see several different grocery bags!  I have different patterns(some I have to measure ;)) so keep coming back….

Now I have a bag to put all my fabrics in when I go fabric shopping! ;)  Hmmmmmmmmmmm,

What fabric store did you get them at?

I got it at a store here called "Home Fabrics". It has discontinued fabrics from home decor to apparel. It is made by "Cranston Village" and I know Joann's and Walmart purchase from.
If you want the code, let me know.
