Yeeeess! Funny and looks great. I myself like bold bold fonts though, for readability and max impact. haha.

Congratulations Lydia! This is an awesome bag, with loads of thought. The idea of using plastic bags, to make it so you don't use them again is very clever! You don't waste anything. Smiley

When I was at my parents I was reading Time magazine and apparently the "This is not a plastic bag lady" uses her bag except for stuff that has "leak potential". Then she uses a plastic bag. So good job.

I was inspired by your bag, and spent the last two hours making my own.  I did one side with Target bags exactly as shown, then did the other side with banana republic black bags cut in half so it says banana on one side and republic on the other.  Now I just need to go and get some duct tape tomorrow, and I'll be in business.
Did you reinforce the bottom with a piece of cardboard before you put on the tape?  Also, would you be willing to talk a little more about the way you attached the handles?  I'd hate to screw it up at this point by attaching them wrong.
Are they long enough to put over your shoulder?
I am a newbie here, but this site is the most exciting thing ever.
I could spend hours just looking at all of the craftiness!  *swoon*
Thanks, and sorry for the long post.
