I just finished the Deck out Your Kitchen swap and my partner said that she needed some reusable bags and that her favorite colors were green and brown, so I immediately got to work.  I made her a set of these bags out of this neat green and brown/grey striped fabrics.




I used this tutorial from MorsBags: http://www.morsbags.com/morsbaginstructions.pdf.  However, I altered it slightly by boxing the corners at the bottoms of the bags to make them better for holding groceries.  I was really happy with how these came out.  The MorsBag tutorial is great.  I've used it before to make people bags for Christmas and I'll definitely use it again.  If you are using the tutorial to make grocery bags, be sure to box the corners once you're done or else the bags don't work well for holding multiple smaller items.  Go with the tutorial just as it is if you're going to make totes for papers or books or the like.

My partner received and she said that she liked them.  Hopefully more people will make reusable bags so we don't have to waste as much plastic as we do now.

Those turned out great, love the fabric.  I made a bunch of morsbags for quick Christmas presents, but I didn't think to box the corners, I'll try it next time!
