What better way to answer the supermarket question "Paper or plastic" than with one word:  Neither!
So meet the Farmer Friendly bag, since what's good for Earth is also good for the farmer (and thus the rest of us)- growing and using cotton vs. tearing down slow-growing trees or putting plastic into landfills. 
...but of course, the irony is that the bag's design is based on a plastic bag (that says THANK YOU), and contains bias tape in the familiar brown color of the traditional paper bag.  I hope you like it:



The color's more of a tan... and the writing says:  Neither paper nor plastic... I'm Farmer Friendly  (get it? farmer-friendly...  heheh)

And closeup of the brown bag bias tape and lining:




Thanks for looking!

Ahhhhhh why did I vote already!!! I could just slap myself in the face becuase this is my favorite bag! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrr! jkefhfkhdskhdksahda kdhjasd! I am seriously angry right now!

*breath*

Okay, i have a question, can I use this saying on a bag of my own? I don't want to copy your bag exactly but the whole "Neither paper nor plastic" is really cute. So I was was wondering, with your permission, If I could use your idea and make myself a bag like this.

 Angry I'm still mad though

Thank you thank you!!   Grin  All of these bags look so great- I just wish I had more time to devote to mine (isn't that always the case for a Craftster?).

LOL  Of course you can!!  Feel free- I'd love to see what you do with it and how you make it even more creative.  Could you post a pic or three when you make one??  That would be great.   Smiley  Thanks again!!
