These bags are really great, and so many  Shocked  Grin
I always try to have a bag with me so that i don't need plastic bags. They're really ugly and bad for environment.

<<Does anyone know of something that would be better to use than plastic bags for the kitchen - but that could take the disgusting masses of what ends up in the garbage?>>

Yes.  As a matter of fact, there are many companies out there now that make biodegradable "plastic" bags for kitchen use.  I just found one website called ecoproducts.com that sells bags made from corn and other annually renewable resources.  When put in composting conditions, i.e., in soil or open air, they biodegrade in 30-60 days.  There are many companies out there that have similar items.  They may be a little bit more expensive than Hefty but it seems that it is worth it.  Google it.

Hey: well done. I'm allergic to plastic, so I've been using cloth bags for a while now. When I first started using exclusively cloth, it took 10 months to clear my plastic bag holder of the plastic bags it was stuffed with. I've also been making and passing out cloth bags to any of my family that will accept them. (I'm not sure that they use them all the time, but even sometimes using them helps.) Thanks for the listed link. It looks like it's really neat. I love all of your bags. I may have to start with the "DEJUNK for 2008" as well. (Let's see, do I have enough fabric to make...Well, I'll have to get .25M of ... Oh, never mind!) Thanks again for sharing.

These are GORGEOUS bags. I am bookmarking this and definitely using my stash for some of these.

Well, it's been nearly two years since I went on a bag-making spree.  Since then I've brought maybe as many as 12 plastic bags into my house (ie. I've forgotten to take a cloth bag out with me 12 times).

My husband's mum gave me a few old duvet covers in the autumn, hoping I could turn them into something useful.  Of course, I made bags.  Managed to get 12 bags out of them in time for Christmas.  Here's a representative selection:

I've got 4 little bags in the space-invaders fabric all cut out and ready to stitch together, so that'll be 16 bags out of three duvets.  I could've got more, but my husband was in charge of the cutting-out and he decided to be fussy with the aeroplanes. Cheesy

The first batch of bags I made in 2008 were all destined for female friends and relatives.  These ones are for the men.  Equality in all things!

To sum up, I still love cloth bags. Smiley
