I read a while back that the reusable grocery totes you get at the grocery actually are a haven for bacteria. YUK! I had to come up with my own easy, foldable, washable, and of course stylish tote for carrying to the store. I made it into a Tutorial and teach it as a Sip & Stitch class at the Beehive in Atlanta.
I've made it for my kids as a Library Book tote for transporting books, and have made it several time as gifts!
