This is my entry in the Craftster Craft Challenge #20.

I like the shape and size of paper bags, so that is where I got my inspiration.

Pattern:


Supplies:


Fabric and Lining Cut:


Inside:


Wire Reinforcement:Coat Hangers (So bag can stand on it's own while being filled.)


Front Pockets: (Clear for coupons and shopping list. Used shrink film to create words, and they were sewn into pockets.)


Pocket Action Shots:




Reinforced Handles:(Both in sewing, and with marine vinyl to protect hands from fabric cutting into with heavy load)


Reinforced Bottom: (Used heavy cardboard to make bottom stable, but it can be removed to wash bag.)


Completed Bag Action Shot:


This is my first Craftster Challenge entry, and can you tell I was very into this bag making?  Cheesy  Currently I'm making more to do my shopping with only these bags. Awesome challenge idea!!!

Great job! The coupon slot idea is genius! I've stopped clipping coupons because I'm always losing them. But this way they'd be attached to my shopping bag. Cheesy

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
