I just love Queenofdiy's grocery bag tutorial! This is about the sixth one I've made and they have all been huge hits with the people I've given them too. Even though lots of people have made beautiful versions of this bag I decided to go ahead and post this one since it is made from a vintage tablecloth. The tablecloth was pretty holey so I was only able to get two front panels and two pockets out of it so I made one for my SIL for Christmas and then this one. I used a pale blue linen-look fabric for the backs.



Here it is folded up into its little pocket:

I love it! This fabric is awesome. It has a kind of "Farmers Market" feel to it. Too bad there wasn't more of the fabric that you could salvage.
