I wanted to make a bag large enough to hold groceries for my big family as well as be durable, strong and have pockets for keys, money, credit cards, cell phone.  This way, I can carry it into the store without also toting along another bag or purse.

I had two pairs of pants that had been ripped that were waiting in my "use it" pile so I grabbed those and got to work.  

Here's what I came up with:

photo 1:  me, holding the bag


photo 2:  with groceries


photo 3:  big enough inside to hold two gallons of milk, plus!


photo 4:  inside pockets


photo 5:  outside front pockets


photo 6:  back pockets (the bag lays flat across the bottom normally.  just sitting funny in the picture.)


The saying on the bag is a New England proverb that I love:  "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without."

I stenciled it on, along with the recycling symbol, with paint that I already had.

Hope you like it!

That's a great-looking bag, and I love the slogan.

This is great -- and it's extra-awesome because you used things that you already had!

I think this is my favorite bag submitted so far.  I love the look - very stylish.  And that quote is awesome!

Very nice! Love the quote, and now I definitely know what to do with my 'what-to-do-with?' jeans  Wink

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.
