Is it time to go green?
I can't stand grocery store bags. The plastic slides open and all your goods fall out all over in the car PLUS they can only pack a few things in them! How often do I go to the store and get 10 items only to have 5 or MORE plastic bags!!! Paper holds more but have had them rip open on me more times than I can count on a good day! lol Usually I get paper in plastic which works as a reinforcement. And now they charge us for the bags! Gotta get busy and make some market bags.It's not that I don't HAVE a couple of the store bought market bags with grocery store logos, but #1 they aren't attractive. #2 I use them take them in the house and don't take them back to the car. :( If they were more attractive, maybe I would! I found a very good site that has links for a BUNCH of different ones to make. This will be a good way to use up some leftover/stashed material. And if I don't have enough of that then the $2 a yard sections at JoAnn's and the one Walmart that I know still has fabric! :) Click here for list of patterns
