Hola everyone,
I have been a voyeur of craftster for several months now and I am just tickled to enter this challenge.  In fact, it was a resolution of mine before even knowing of this particular craftster challenge.
 
My 3-fold resolution is:
#1- Enter a craftster challenge.  (YEEE-HAWW!!  Feels good!!)
#2- Use reusable grocery bags.
#3- Stop shopping at a particular Gigantimart in my town that shall remain nameless.

So yeah- #1 is a gimmie, but I did want to put it in there because Im proud of myself.

#2- I have had this one on my radar for years.  I HATE plastic bags and everything they stand for.  I hate how they overrun my home.  I hate how grocery baggers under-fill them.  I double hate their detriment to the environment.  AND, though I love the size and shape of the big paper grocery bags- I hate the idea of cutting down trees to carry my precious groceries. 
None of this is new. 
I have seen countless awesome ideas for reusable grocery bags, right here on craftster, and I figured it was high time I made some for myself. I looked and looked for styles that I liked, and fabric that I liked.  And finally, I came up with my very own design idea. (I do promise I havent seen this particular anywhere myself.  Please correct me if you have seen it elsewhere.  Id like to give credit where its due.)
                                           THE PLAPER BAG!!!!!
This was born out of the wonderful tutorials out there on fusing plastic bags to make a stiff sewable plastic fabric, and my love of the paper bag for size and shape when it comes to carrying groceries.  I sewed a paper-type bag out of the fused plastic (and added functional handles)

                               PLASTIC- PLAPER- PAPER


                       STRONG REENFORCED BOTTOM


                                NICELY FOLDED


                              STURDY HANDLES


               ACTION SHOT (WORKS GREAT!)


And then this brings us to #3.
There is a mega mega MEGA store in my home town that moved in while I was living elsewhere.  I moved home to find all the little mom and pop stores vanished, (mostly all the craft and fabric stores), forcing me to either drive 40 mins. out of my way, or frequent this place, which ironically, never had what I needed anyway.  I finally decided- 
NO MORE!
So- when I was designing my plaper bag- I did a bit of clever layering with some plastic bags from this mystery mega store and this store that had a big red circle in their logo that I cut to make the empty set sign as a bit of a jab of dislike. (I blurred the mega store logo in the photos, because I realize this is a personal beef, and the last thing I am trying to do is slander this store on craftster).

                                          LOGO JAB


I have used my new bag several times, and I love it.  But I am thinking I need about 4 or 5 more for those BIG food shopping trips. 
Id be glad to post a tutorial when I make my next one, if there is an interest. 
And thank you thank you for looking at my FIRST craftster challenge entry.

This is awesome!  I love how you added handles to it, as regular paper bags are awkward at best.  And the layering with the images?  Too cool.  Great job!  Grin

That bag is so awesome.  Did you have any trouble fusing the plastic?  I have wanted to try this but I'm afraid it will either gum up my iron or release toxic fumes or both.  Then did you just make a pattern from a paper grocery bag?  I love how you did this and how you played with the logos! 

Walmart is pretty much the worst place ever, I hate it there.

Well Wal-Mart doesn't have a big red circle or red at all in their logo so I'd say its not Wal-Mart and rather a Target. I really hate that people don't like Wal-Mart, I work there and we are doing alot to go green, we have been recycling cardboard and plastic as well as drink cans for along time now, all our bags are made of recycled plastic from either old bags or hangers, and we now sell reuseable shopping bags that are tote sized and only a dollar and the hold alot, they make them out of recycled plastic bags and the are woven so they are tough. My Wal-Mart store, Store 0690 has done alot for the community we gave local churches 30% off vouchers that they used to buy clothing for the needy children for Christmas, my store also cleaned up a local river that I personally helped with, the city couldn't afford to pay people to clean it up so Wal-Mart took volunteers from our store on our days off and we cleaned the river up three times and made it into the paper we ended up getting a grant from the state for our work which we donated to the city to start a recycling campain. I know that big companies do take away from smaller businesses and that is a sad fact, but we try to give the customers what they want, and Wal-Mart isn't the only big company that does it, other retail store take away from local vendors and chain specialty stores do too. We really do try and there are alot of small things that Wal-Mart does that gets overlooked and I just wanted to bring a little info your direction, I do understand why some people are antiWal-Mart but we aren't the worst, we do do alot for our local communities that other retail giants don't and I'd rather her people be antiretail that just jaded against Wal-Mart.

Actually, she said she drew the red circles on there. And it's obvious that it's WalMart because the "save money live better" slogan is all over it.

Excellent grocery bag, good work!

Great design! The handles are great on that shape bag, kinda like Trader Joe paper bags (which are like gold in my-house, we re-use them until they fall apart, but obviously this is even better and will last even longer!).

EEK! Shocked
I am totally sorry that the mystery-mart became the focus here.  Like i said, it's a personal problem i have with the store, and this isn't the forum for me to barf about such things.
i probably shouldnt have mentioned that aspect of the project.
please disregard resolution #3.  i'll correct it tomorrow when i am more awake.

as for the bag construction- yes, its just a paper bag pattern. 
and the fused plastic is interesting, although not my favorite.  it is difficult for me to get the temp just right on the iron, and you MUST use parchment paper or some kind of barrier so your iron doesnt get all gummed up.
for this i used 3 bags on top of eachother, and they werent cut open, so that's 6 layers of plastic.
it sews together OK, but behaves like any slick fabric would, so care must be taken there. 
overall, for the bag style i chose that's all boxy, i think the stiff fused plastic was the best choice.  it stands on it's own and is sturdier than paper or 1 layer of plastic.

thanks for your comments.
and again, sorry if my entry was a source of contention.

this turned out really really awesome! i really like the way that you reused the old plastic bags in order to reduce your use of plastic. (i think reduce and reuse are the most important r's, i find too many people and legislations are aimed at recycling, but not enough are aimed at simply reducing and reusing what we have)

i also love that you made your statement using the layers - that's so clever! and thanks for the tips about the fusible plastic, i've been wanting to try it out myself.

i think it's great that you incorporated your resolution #3. and i see no reason why you shouldn't include it in your post. you made it pretty clear that you didn't want this post to end up bashing the store.  especially since you went to the trouble of actually blurring out the logo in all the bags! i feel just the same as you, but this is no place to discuss it.

it is a really wonderful project and a great way to reach your resolutions! Cheesy

thank you Jessimocha, Grin
i guess i will leave it in.
and yeah-  incorporating the plastic that i dislike so much into the solution feels pretty satisfying. 
and sadly, even after making these plaper bags out of my stash of plastic bags, i know that everyone around me is overrun with plastic bags and i would probably never run out of "material" if i made them full time forever.
i think i should do that for my mom and friends, when i get my 5-6 bags done.  take their stashes and turn them into reusable bags.

Thanks for the tips on fusing the plastic!  I love your bag, I have been keeping a stash of reusable bags in the car and the one you made is so awesome, I think I'm going to try and do one myself. 

You made it very clear in your post that you didn't intend for your entry to be a debate about where to or not to shop.  I shouldn't have named any names when I responded, aside from just saying I agree with you. Wink

Best,

Though I do hate that people dislike where I work I do understand why, I probably should have just cut my prior comment down to say what I actually wanted to and left the freak out at home.

I just wanted to let everyone know that if you have the problem with having too many plastic grocery bags that Wal-Mart does sale reuseable shopping bags that are made from recycled plastic bags, they are very roomie and strong. So if your home is over run by plastic bags, bring 'em back to the store and we'll be happy to take them back.

Though for people who wish to craft with bags more power to you, I've seen many people on here use bags for all sorts of things from pain brushes to knitting.

creamycharb I didn't mean to make you feel bad or feel as if you did wrong by expressing your opinion, and I'm sorry that I did.

I love your bag's style. It's quite nice and I personally understand your frustration with the big store never having what you need. Though for me My big craft store is the one that does that! lol.

I specifically buy clothes that I don't need to iron, and thus I don't have one.  However, seeing this type of thing, as well as having an odd obsession with Perler beads, makes me think I should buy an iron.

Any thoughts on what kind of iron I should get?  What should I look for?

get an inexpensive one if you are just starting out. that way if it gets ruined there are no tears.

I like ironing as the therapudic part of my crafting. I have a 50 dollar iron (it was a wedding gift, but still.....)

It's a very useful art

Oh No!  i dont iron my clothes either. 
my iron is specifically for crafts.
you could grab one second hand,i bet
and you wouldnt need a functioning steam feature for the plastic fusing.  but there may be other crafts out there that require steam-  i dont know.

I'm gonna post a tutorial as soon as i can have some crafting time.

1. Etsy labs has an amazing tutorial on fusing the plastic bags. At that point you could always make any pattern you wanted.

2. This is one of my favorite entrys.

3. I always ask for paper instead of plastic at the grocery store but really have always wanted to use a reusable bag. My question to everyone that brings their own: Do you just hand it to the bagger and not say anything or ask him/her to use your bag?

1-yes, it was the etsy tute http://etsylabs.blogspot.com/2007/05/long-overdue-fusing-plastic-bag.html that i first used. 

2- thank you so much

3-I will typically just put the bags up on the counter before any of my groceries.  *most* baggers understand. 
i think (hope) it's become common enough for them to see reusable bags.
and there are some stores who will give you like 5 cents off your purchase for every reusable bag you bring in.
trader joes?  wild oats? it was someplace in Boston i used to frequent,  but i live in Utah now, where people can be a tad clueless. but its getting better.

And i wanted to say that i'm tickled at the great variety of reusable bags that have popped up for this challenge.
i'm not alone in my resolution!!!!!

I have tried to do the plastic-fabric but it shrank and died on me during the ironing- but I'm gunna try again this spring with plenty of ventilation =) The saddest thing about Walmart is that there are many of us who see it as a necessary evil. My family and I hate it, but we can't feed ourselves on our paychecks anywhere else. It is a vicious cycle, as they say

Whole Foods (and probably Wild Oats, too) gives you 5 cents for each bag you bring in.  They also usually give you the option to donate those cents to the local project they are currently involved in.  The last project we heard about was helping a local elementary school go green - specifically by adding a roof-top organic garden.

I LOVE going to Whole Foods for many reasons, but one of my favorite things is that they actually thank you for bringing in reusable bags.  Everywhere else we get dirty looks and grumbles  Tongue  At one grocery store, the checkers actually fought over who had to bag for us...then we ended up having to do it ourselves  Angry

I have had to carry my own bags for the past couple of years (plastic allergy) and I usually set my bags ahead of my groceries on the conveyor belt. {I have about 8 or 10 folded up into a small Jordy-type bag.} Many baggers dislike them (It seems to be a gender thing; the guys usually despise them, the ladies will tolerate them better). If you have a rolled up or fold-able bag, unroll them or unfold them and they'll be a bit better received. I usually say something like "I have my own bags, thanks." or "I have to use my own bags." Because I live in a small community, I've gotten to be well known at the places that I frequent, and most checkers ask for my bags, now. Also, now that reusable is more prevalent, the checkstand people are a bit more tolerant of the reusable bags.

that is a cool bag

and dont worry,

everyone on here pretty much hates walmart
Just to clarify, I don't  hate Walmart. (Where I live, it's one of the few places I have to shop for craft supplies.) It's one of my pet peeves that they are the focus of this when in fact it is our government's policies and other countries' labor policies that are the problem.  Not to mention that nearly every other store you can shop at profits from the same stuff, so it doesn't make sense to single out one retailer as the devil.  Target swoops in and profits after Walmart does their dirty work, and they sell the same MIC crap.  Safeway, Kmart, and nearly every other retailer sells items made in places with questionable labor practices.  People order from Oriental Trading Company all the time.  Yet Walmart is the evil empire and everyone else gets a pass.

That makes no sense whatsoever.

If you look at the packages your jewelry findings come in, a lot of them are MIC for little money, which is one of the major gripes about Walmart.  As long as Americans want cheap products and companies can get them made somewhere else using cheap labor, that's the way it's going to be, and Walmart is far from being the only company to take advantage of this.  They are also far from being the only company to pay their employees badly or have less than perfect insurance plans.

It's the system. 

That said, the bags are cool.

thanks for the props on the bags everyone-
i swear i am working on a tute!

and yeah- bigeyes-  you make some good points.
there is always someone out there doing worse.
i guess i should make a bag that says "no MIC"
get to the source.
but my gripe is that the big companies came into town and pushed out all the little guys.
and that just makes me plain sad.
BUT-
i took a pledge over at http://nikkishell.typepad.com/wardroberefashion/ to not buy any new clothes for myself or my son for the next 6 months-  and man, has it freed me.
SAVERS prices beat the heck out of any big megamart for clothes and toys. 
i am also trying not to purchase any new crafting supplies-  and if i do, i wait until there are several things i need and i make a special trip to a little crafty joint about 20 mins away.
(actually, i have had really good luck at SAVERS for craft supplies sometimes too)
i've stuck to my resolution not to shop at this big store, and seriously, it has just made me a more deliberate and consciencious consumer.  im not saying they are the devil-  but shopping there made it too easy for ME to justify needing a bunch of crap that i didn't really want to be buying.  but i, likewise, havent shopped at ANY megamart since january. 
dollar stores should be on that list too.
they are the worst offenders for MIC stuff.
im going to have to choose wisely for the dollar store craft challenge coming up.
hmmmmmm.

Oh yes, the dollar store especially!  A lot of people I know who proudly proclaim that they never go to Walmart regularly go to the Dollar store.  Huh

The whole MIC thing is so much deeper than Walmart.  There are so many items in your house with parts that started in China, and if you really wanted to completely avoid buying anything that was even partially manufactured in China, it would be kind of like trying to avoid Disney, (go to http://www.cjr.org/resources/) practically impossible.  (It kills me that A&E, ABC, and Discover Magazine are part of Disney, who I consider to be The Original Evil Empire.
IMO, the energy people put into protesting Walmart could be better used watching  C-Span, studying tax law and writing your congressman. 

Recycling, OTOH, shows instant results, even if it's just in your own home.  It's something anyone can do, and people like the OP come up with creative and innovative ways to reuse things that would otherwise become trash.

Congrats on resolution number 3!! I haven't shopped at Walmart in so long.. and I'm proud. I used to think I couldn't afford food elsewhere - was I wrong! I eat mostly organic/natural so my food already has a high price tag. Wasn't hard to get rid of that place from my errands list.

Although the problem isn't with walmart itself. It's all the big companies, especially fast food, that really have taken the uniqueness out of America's cities. (And money out of their worker's pockets) We're just too comfortable and will only shop at XXXXX brand - someone else can support the local shops. Right?

Plastic bags are disgusting but what's even more disgusting is how hard people push them onto me. I have my own bags and everything.. And they insist on giving me bags. Makes me want to scream, yell, jump up and down, even pull out a bit of hair.

What's also impossible to avoid is high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils. Pick your lesser evil, folks, or you'll end up with an empty pantry.

Veering way OT, but yes, exactly!  There is  no more food in our food, and that is how they are profiting while people grow fat and sick.  It's evil. The things our government (FDA is such a joke) allows all big businesses to do in the name of profits irritate me way more than anything one company does.  It's what you buy, just as much as where you buy it.

Back on topic, the OP's bag rocks.  I'm crocheting one still, but I guess I'll have to try one of these, too.
