My new years resolution this year is to be more green/sustainable.
So to help me with this resolution I crafted myself some reusable shopping bags.
With these I wont use plastic or paper shopping bags which are bad for the environment.
The graphic was inspired by a product (Red) bag my friend has.
Her's says (red)uce.
I took this a bit further and made myself recycle, reduce, reuse bags.
The fabric is made from rapidly renewable fibers (to keep it green), 70% cotton and 30% linen.
I got it on sale for $5 a yard at Joann's.
The pattern for the bags I just made up, it's a simple box-bottom tote.
The graphics are stenciled on with acrylic paint and fabric medium.
They took forever to cut out with my handy dandy x-acto knife.
The pictures themselves are adapted from photos I had in my library.
Recycle (sf skyline):
Reuse (skyline + forest)
please excuse the blur...
