For my entry, I decided to make a whole set of coordinating bags that can be folded into a zipper pouch for easy carrying. That way, I'll have enough nice fabric bags for a medium sized shopping trip.
I used iron-ons to put my series of sea side animals with protest signs onto the bags.
The bags are made of leftovers from other projects, mostly cotton muslin, and printed cotton linings.
The pattern is made from a regular grocery store bag following queenofdiy's tutorial.
The drawings I did following some pictures of the animals I found on coloring pages on-line. None were originally protesting.
Here are some in various states of finishedness.
Here is the top stitching and anchor lining on the starfish bag.
This is the lining of the other bags. It makes me think of water bubbles.
If you go to my site at this link: http://www.beppycat.com/reusable%20bags You can get full-sized images of the animals to swipe and use on your own bags if you think they're cute.
Thanks for looking everyone! I hope they've made you smile!!
BTW, there were going to be some with puns involving the words "levithan" and "reel" but my husband said those were stretching my pun making abilities to the breaking point.
