Bring your own grocery shopping bags to the store!

My new year's resolution was to use fewer plastic grocery bags. Since I'm a sewer, I Googled "fabric shopping bag patterns" and found this tutorial: TUTORIAL: Singlet Style Shopping Bag w Pattern (like the plastic shopping bag) - PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS.

It's working out great! I have made five bags so far, of assorted cotton prints from my fabric stash. It feels good to be doing my bit, and I have to admit I enjoy getting the reaction, "You MADE that?" from cashiers and customers.

Cloth grocery bags are the best! I've been using reusable cloth bags for a number of years. Would never go back to accepting plastic again.

So happy to hear you're happy with your new bags! I love doing my bit!!!
