I have finally jumped on the band wagon. I go to a local grocery that charges for grocery bags and I am not willing to pay the extra few pennies. I have one canvas bag I bought at Soulard Market last summer so I decided yesterday to copy it and make two more.
Ta da!! 2 more market bags.... so quick to make and very handy. I will keep these in my boot (as my father-in-law used to call the trunk) and use them for all of my shopping, grocery or otherwise. Want to go green too? I cut these 22 x 22 and cut a 3 inch square out of each bottom corner. That gives me a 6 inch bottom which is generous enough for cereal boxes. Straps are cut 2 1/2 inches wide x 25 inches long.
Basic bag making instruction was used. I did zigzag finish all the seams and top stitched the handles to give them more strength. Since I had the canvas in my stash it only cost me time.
Sorry for the dark photo. It has been sunny here for 2 days, so of course today is rain.
