Pattern Description:

Handy Stuffable Shopper
Where I live, plastic bags are going away, and while I'm good for grocery bags, it struck me at the drugstore that I am not good for little items that could use a bag. After staring at the little plastic bag I got, inspiration struck and here it is.
Takes a 12 by 24*rectangle of something lightweight (I used a nylon piece from Daiso, but anything scrunchable will do) and an elastic hairband (once again, a touch of Hello Kitty creeps into my life, but a regular one would probably be more portable). Cuts and sews in much less than an hour.

*any size but it should fold to make a square.

Please, post photos of your completed bags! Let's see what this baby can do!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 12 by 12


  • 12 by 24 rectangle of lightweight fabric
  • One hair elastic

You Will Also Need:

  • Thread
  • Snacks (optional)

We can sew our way out of this! Been doing that for over forty years (my momma started me early). I am most interested in functional and efficient patterns that can be made up quickly that result in items that make life easier and are fun to use. Always up for a design challenge, I'm game for commissions. Let's make something good!
