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
