I have wanted to make some reusable shopping bags for a while. I just keep putting it off. School, kids, you know...
I cannot justify putting it off any longer. The amount of plastic (and paper) bags that come through my house is shameful.
I looked all over on-line to find a free pattern for the perfect size tote. I loved this one with the flat bottom by bijoulovelydesigns. The flat bottom holds more, and is a little more stable. That is very important when you have a 10 year old boy who helps with the groceries. Somehow (no matter how hard I try) he always ends up the eggs.
All the instructions can be found here!
I followed her directions pretty much exactly, except I did not use interfacing or a contrasting lining.
I used left over bleached canvas, and a gray twill for the bottom.
Now what I am going to put in the bathroom trash cans?
