I love that fabric, Gatchley! Your bag looks great.
It surprises me that there are places where bringing your own bag is still weird. I live in a city, so most people at our neighborhood grocery store bring their own bags (since fabric bags are so much easier to carry when walking home with groceries). Even when I go out to the big store in the suburbs, I would estimate that about half of the people bring their own. I hope the habit doesn't take too long to catch on everywhere!
