How did it work out for the groceries Jen?  I have not used that style in the grocery store yet (see note above about forgetting them here at home)

Thank you all!

it worked fine.  i would do a few things different if i were making it.  interfacing in the bottom for example.  the bottom is a little "floppy" for shopping.   but it worked well.  i liked that it rolls up nice and small, and can go from shopping to crochet bag in an instant.

i should be better at typing...

I've got two bags in my car for grocery shopping that I've yet to use because I forget to take them into the store.  Good intentions....

My niece asked for a smaller version of my striped bags... this is what I came up with.  I hope she likes it, I do not care for the size too much... way to small for my needs.

i like it.  i think she will too.  my girls both carried small purses until they started working.  now they carry slightly larger ones.  but next year, when babies arrive... :giggle:

Yes, next year will be another story.
Great job, Triss. Of course it is hard to tell the size is any different from your others. Something for contrast next time might help.

Good idea... it is about half the size of the other bags... 9" tall by 7" wide.  I do love the colors though... I am partial to greens.

They're both nice. I prefer blue to green too but that green fabric is cool!

Triss, you do great work. Is this for someone specific? Or are you planning to sell it?

That ones nice too. As for stiffening the bottoms for shopping, the fabric bags I have and (should) reuse (more) there is a stiff piece of, uh, vinyl I guess. Which is removable when washing.

I am going to put that one up to sell.  I need to check around and see if others are making similar ones to get a price range.

I have seen those inserts in other bags of mine from the grocery stores.
