Reusable Grocery Bags

I have a pile of things in my craft room that are "Works in Progress" (WIPs) and I'm starting to finally dig through it and get stuff done!

I've been wanting to make these bags for at least a year now, so I finally did it (thanks Bri, you motivated me after you made yours!). I used a fabric shower curtain that I bought at Target on clearance for $2. I got four bags out of it and still have some fabric left over- we'll see where it pops up. It's a lightweight canvas material, so it should hold up to use. Isn't it so fun!? The fun thing about these bags is they have a little pouch sewn to the inside, so you can fold these up and store them in your purse or glove box, or just tossed into your trunk. They're always handy!

I think they'll make grocery shopping fun again! And you can feel even better about using bags that you've made because they weren't made in a sweatshop (if you know the reference to that one, let me know; maybe you'll get a prize).

Love them. I'm glad I could inspire you :-). I actually still have three that need to be finished. You are such a good thrifty shopper. I need lessons. Or maybe I just need to get out more.
