 Has any one ever bought a large amount of fabric just because it was on sale?  I bought 10 yards of this canvas uphosltry material because it was 50 cents a yard. After 8 years, I now only have about 5 yards left.

One of my New Year's resolutions was to use less plastic bags.  I really didn't like the look of the re-usable bags that they sold at the grocery store, so I made my own out of this material that I had for years.

So I don't bunch them up I added a little strip of material on one side of the bags with a button enclosure.  They work really well and fit in my purse.

These bags are wonderful. I really love that you made them so they roll up with a button to fit into your purse. Outstanding eco bags!!

Those are so cute.  I usually tell people not to buy things just because they're cheap (people usually regret it) but this is definitely not something to regret!  Kudos!

Thank you. It's good fabric, I just never had much use for it, and at 50 cents a yard, I couldn't beat that.

  These bags were easy to make, so I may make some more for my family and finally get rid of the rest.

Oh, that's pretty fabric! I probably would have bought it too, as I do that all the time.

Great idea though, with the grocery totes, and the nifty roll strap.
