Washington state enacted this new bag-ban thing while I was in Alaska and I am militantly apposed to paying ten cents for the pleasure of carrying my purchases out of a store with ease. Enter - The Great Bag-Ban Market Tote! Almost as big as a traditional paper bag, but with longer handles - easily tie them together to prevent things from falling out in the trunk of your car! This cute little bag is wildly easy to make and fast to boot! Great for a beginner with 7 pages of step-by-step instructions and full color how-to photos. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic sewing machine operation SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS finished bag is ever so slightly smaller than a regular paper grocery bag, but with the added bonus of longer handles

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1/2yd outer, 1/2yd lining and 1/8yd for the handles
  • sewing machine, scissors, ruler, and pins
