Making up some of these reusable shopping bags has been on my list of projects for some time now.  I love the great basic pattern you've used and can't wait to try some out for myself.  There is one thing I've been dying to ask someone though...how do you handle using your bags at the grocery store?  Up until now I've always just refused to take a bag when the items that I'm buying will fit easily into my purse and generally I get nothing but shock from the cashiers.  I can't imagine asking them to use my fabric bags.  Do they bag your items just as usual or do you end up doing it yourself?  (This may be the lamest question every but I still wonder about it and can't help but think there must be some sort of etiquette to it.)  Anyways, if anyone would be willing to share their experiences that would be great.  And again...I love these bags, great work!

That is such a great and clever idea. I love all of them, especially the one with the unusable fabrics. Great job. I could never make that many bags in less than...ten years.

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!

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.
