Freebie Friday! The Big Shopping Bag

Prj066

I’ve been putting off this project for a long while now, which is so silly! For quite some time now I’ve needed a few new reusable shopping bags to bring along with me to the grocery store and whatnot. I have a few of the store-bought kind that were given to me as prizes, promotions, etc., but I really needed something a lot bigger to fully round out my collection and handle some of the bigger things I buy.

I don’t know why I put off making one for so long, seeing as how I had plenty of fabric and it would have gone quickly. But I finally decided no more procrastinating. I figured if I was going to take the project seriously I would take the bag a bit more seriously too. The main body of the bag is quilting cotton reinforced with some quilt batting, but the sides and bottom are vinyl for extra strength and so I don’t have to worry about the cotton getting dirty. The handles go all the way down the side of the bag so they’re held on strongly, and they’re extra wide so they don’t cut into your shoulder when you’re carrying something heavy. I’ve found that this thing can tackle even the biggest jugs of milk or detergent that I buy from the wholesale club :B
