I was frustrated with the poor quality of the reusable grocery bags that were available, so I designed my bags to be as sturdy as possible and easy to make. These bags are also great projects for using up fabric scraps left from quilting projects. The bags I have made are sturdy enough to fill with heavy items, and are machine washable, too. Learn how to make your own durable reusable grocery or tote bags using either large pieces of fabric or scraps left over from previous quilting projects. This pattern includes sixteen pages of detailed instructions with over 50 photos of the process to guide you in creating your bags. Beginners with basic sewing skills to advanced sewers can create unique bags.

I love create beautiful art, gifts and household items with fabric, paint and thread; using flowers, gardens and my surroundings as inspiration. I have begun to write patterns so that anyone who wants, can now create some of my gift items that include Tote Bags, Notebook and Journal covers, Photo Album Covers, Fabric Bowls and more. I also love to paint, sunprint and dye my own fabrics to use in my work. See my finished items for sale on here-
