I don’t know why I get these wild hairs to go off and do these little projects, I just do. Today I’d like to share with you my latest small endeavor for a new pattern…the grocery bag!
I have sooooo many cute fabrics to play with so I wanted to come up with a pattern that would be 1 Yard, 1/2 Yard and Fat Quarter friendly, without a lot of waste and yet be something that is completely functional and useful.
Currently, my design needs to improve on the opening at the handles. I just don’t have enough room. (You can sorta see my first effort to the right of the bag below).
The handle opening is too small (see the photo below and the opening at the left).
This little grocery bag was put to the test yesterday at Ultra Foods, they actually gave me .05c just for using it! Fringe benefits for using re-usable grocery bags! Heck, with all my testing and shopping these little bags will practically PAY for themselves!
I still have work to do before I’ll release this pattern as a fun sew-along. So what are YOUR thoughts on these re-usable grocery bags? I’d love to hear from you!
Stay tuned on this one!
