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,
