What are you most proud of? I modified the first one by adding a tab on the top edge while I was putting on the handle. I also added a button 5 " below the tab. The button was added before topstitching the top edge closed. This made the bag so it could be folded and rolled and the tab hooked on to the button to store in your purse until needed when shopping. I posted a picture above.

Hey that tab and button is a great idea - good thinking

Thank you! Try it for all cloth bags. My husband used to elastic band all my cloth bags together and I would fight with the elastics and not know what to do with them when I was going to use the bags. That is when I invented a tab and a button. It nicely uses up old big odd buttons.

I also like the tab and button idea! Nice work!

Thank you! It makes it so they are not all wrinkled and untidy in your purse.

I was wondering what the tab and the button was for. These are nice.

Thank you! I used to fix all my bought cloth bags with the tab and the button and have a bag of bags when I went shopping!
