you can also get compost bags to put your garbage in, i know here you can get them from any groc. store
 but the bags are awesome... i have some that you can zipper into a small square

Pay no attention to me dancing with my girl, we have every intention of being failures in this world.

Because of this post I made my first reuseable bag tonight... and I'm not even a sewer! I am in love with it, even though it is dreadfully ugly. I plan to make tons more too, and encourage others to do the same. Thanks for the inspiration!

Personal swap hungry- send me a yummy PM.

My computer just died and I lost my Favourites, but one I had saved showed how to make pots for seedlings from newspaper. All I could find were small ones, but by using the whole sheet, you could make liners for smaller bins anyway. Or the bins themselves if you are so inclined.

They look great!

I love morsebags! I have made a few myself.

Are they just lightweight cotton? I tend to use furnishing fabrics for mine but have  been given lots of cotton fabric and wasn't sure if it would be strong enough for a tote bag.

Hey dink, thanks so much for posting this and your bags are BEAUTIFUL! - here are some morsbags I've made which have been really fun: http://www.morsbags.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=223&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

and morsbaggers have now made over 13,000 worldwide which potentially replaces over 6.5 million plastic bags!  Smiley so if someone from here feels like setting up a Craftster pod so that more bags can be added to the tally, that'd be brilliant!  Smiley

As for strength of the bags, I've been using mine for well over a year now, filling it with heavy things like wine bottles etc and they were only made from old duvet covers and I haven't sprung a leak yet! Don't forget to label them so that your morsbags aren't naked so that when you give them away the recipient can look the site up and hopefully join in and make some too...

happy bagging x

Wow, thats a lot of bags. I love the fabrics very much. The reason I still use plastic bags, is that I use them for my garbage.. And I allmost never 'plan' to go shopping. But when I'll have to go shopping for myself, I'll take a fabric bag with me. Smiley

...and up comes the toolbar. that's what she said.

i have about 6 of those giant bags from Ikea, and i use them for groceries &the most random things from time to time, and i have a few smaller totes for the "handibasket" trips to the market...  BUT!  this post has inspired me to use a few of the plastic bags that i already have laying around to be outfitted with schnazzy fabric and make 'em be permanent trashcan-liners!  there's nothing like looking into a see-thru wire mesh basket and seeing "thanks for shopping!" and it always irritated me!  but nowwwwwwwwwwww, i will use those baggies and pretty fabrics i've got all over the place to make trash less ugly!

Awesome fabrics!  I don't live on my own yet, so I never have a reason to go shopping, but when I do I'll whip up a few of these puppies.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

I've been looking for a simple bag pattern. I love this one and will have to give it a try!
