I have been inspired by all the green craftsters, So after much thought I realize just how important it is to go green, so I've been focusing my efforts on making a few bags to help eliminate the what seems like a never ending stream of plastic grocery bags that comes in our door.  Here is my result:



And an action shot my son was not too thrilled about having his photo taken with a pink bag lol I think our dog looks a little sad for him too (actually our dog is just a ham and thinks he should be in every photo lol)


I absolutely fell in love with these two prints and had the perfect lining for them and didn't even know it.  I was thrilled that I worked out how to fold them into themselves without the use of a pocket and the weird pulling thing you have to do to make that work. 





Action shot I can fit a ton inside it too and it holds WAY more weight than the plastic ones could ever dream of!


I even made a tiny tote for the trips to the quick shop, movie rental place, and those times when a big bag just isn't necessary Smiley 



Would love to hear your thoughts

They're all beautiful! I love the blue ones!

How do you fold them into themselves without the pocket?

i love them!  the prints are great.

i made a similar lunch bag for my dh, but i don't think i can fold his into a square.  that's so handy, even to keep one in the glove compartment or something  Grin
