This week I have been making reusuable fabric grocery bags. I wanted to make them from the pattern based on the plastic bags all the stores use. I've seen two or three sites with the instructions, but the day I was working on them was one of those days when I couldn't tackle a new pattern. I decided to use the pattern I have been using for my pocketbooks and just modify it some. This worked great and makes a nice bag.
My finished grocery bags are about 14 inches wide and 14 inches deep. They have 12 inch long handles and are lined with matching fabric. I double stitched the bottom seams so they would hold heavy groceries easily. (I hope!)
These are pictures of one of the bags full of groceries and one laying flat.
I still want to tackle the bags that look like grocery bags, but I think these are just as nice and they may be sturdier.
This weekend I plan to make pocketbooks, more grocery bags and maybe a clothespin bag. I still haven't made a rag quilt bag, but want to soon!
