Pattern Details

These bags are not only REUSABLE they are REVERSIBLE! This shopping bag is a great beginner project and it will help use up 1 1/2 yards from the fabric stash! This bag requires no batting, interfacing or zipper. Simple cotton fabric is all this bag needs to help tote home 30+ pounds of anything! The secret is adding a strip of denim to these awesome fabric handles. This pattern includes tips for perfectly straight topstitching, using a built-in sewing machine stitch for simple reinforcing, easy adaption for using up fat quarters AND a serger construction option for even speeder results! We have started sewing these SUCH A SIMPLE BAGS for our local Food Pantry/Food Band to give to guests to help assist getting food home. These bags can hold much more weight than the standard plastic grocery bags AND they are reusable. Need to wash the bags? No problem. Just pop them in the laundry.
