very nice. I love the colors... colorful without being overly bright.

That is very pretty, Triss. I think when I go green enough to begin to carry my own bags I will make them. I don't like the sizes available in the stores now. I want a bigger bottom and just bigger. About the size of the paper grocery bags. I want to carry in as much as possible each trip from my car to the house with the fewest trips. I don't want a bag spilling all over in my vehicle so a flat bottom filled with the heavier items is best.

Thanks everyone... I was a little worried about the lime green at first but it worked out nice.

Tina, this bad looks sloped but it really isn't and it is quite a bit bigger than a Safeway or WM bag and I believe a lot more sturdy as well with the double fabric and interfacing.

I dislike the Walmart plastic bags for the same reasons I stated before. Things fall out and roll all over the van or the trunk or...
I love my grocer's stand up paper bags so basically I want to sew a sturdy version of those. With handles looped all the way around the bottom, webbing I think. Don't mind me, I have been mentally designing my bag for a while.

Sounds good Tina.  I still have to test mine and see how they hold up to being in the trunk, etc.  I forgot to take the bug bag into the store the last time I went shopping.

Well the bag made it to the car so that is a step in the right direction.

on the remembering, kate (my daughter) has bags she uses, her "effort to be green" as she calls it, and to remember to take them in, she puts her purse in them when she gets in the car to go to the store.  and in them when  they are emptied in the house to remind her to take them back to the car.  they live in her trunk.  when we are together, she puts my stuff in her bags too.

Yes, it will just take some self-training. I don't carry a purse. California is trying to pass a bag law, a buck a bag tax from any store. So I do need to get it in my future soon.

Target gives you 5 cents off for every reusable bag that you use.  5 cents isn't much but it adds up over time.

Other stores give a discount as well.

Finished my latest bag.

I made a special bag for Charlie so that he can carry his trains and tracks back and forth to the babysitters on the days I work... He loves it!



Also today I finished up a jean square purse and a jean square lunch bag.  They have to run through the wash and the lunch bag needs a button before I can call either of them complete.

I am thrilled about working... I get 15 hours this week... half days but still.  I am stoked!  Charlie has his bag full of trains and is ready to go.

The hope is to sell some of these bags so I can support my habit.  :grinnnn:

And that raises the question... how much would any of you pay for one of the shopping bags?
