I don't know about you but where I live they don't give out bags any more when you shop. You either bring your own or buy their paper bags for 10 cents a pop (feeding a family of 5 takes a lot of grocery bags). So I do bring my own most of the time but I like having a little one rolled up in my purse in case I forget so I have been playing with this idea of a little bag I can put in my purse and here was my attempt at it. There are lots of instruction on line and I certainly do not prefess to be an expert so I will just show you some of my triumphs and failures. This was my final piece. I used one pack of the designer fabric to make one bag. I took the button fabric and stitched the right sides together to make the outside and the orangish fabric the same to make the inside lining. I cut up the stitch design to make the handles, the top border, the pockets and the left over loops and tab for the button and the closure mechanism.
I loved playing with the fabric and now I ordered some more- how could I resist? Maybe I will make a little blanket using this sweet fabric just for moi! So I can have sweet dreams under my Sweet Stitches!
