Finished these 3 large market totes for a lady.  The lady wanted quite large ones, so I cut them 22" x 22" and the bottoms are squared off although you can't tell by the photo, they're just kinda hangin' there  Cheesy Cheesy  I line all my grocery totes with a heavy duty canvas and they wash and last for a really long time.  My own have been washed and used constantly for groceries for almost 2 years and are holding up beautifully.  I found an alternative to expensive heavy canvas and that is the canvas painter's dropcloths.  Cheaper and heavy duty  Grin  I have all kinds of fruit and vegetable fabrics for these bags, and sold them like crazy at last summers local farmers market. Going "green" one bag at a time  Grin
