Reusable grocery bags, upcycled tote bags, going green market bags or eco friendly shopping bags, no matter what you call them, are everywhere. With this easy to sew pattern and tutorial you can make your own personalized, high quality and easy to store bags. This reusable bag is similar in size and design to plastic grocery bags which makes it a great overall tote bag. Also, the tab and button feature allows you to fold the bag to a convenient 4"h x 7"w x 1"d so you can easily store and take it with you. Many cities have already banned plastic grocery bags and more will follow. Along the coast, it has made a significant difference in the amount of plastic ending up in our beautiful oceans. If each of us makes small changes, such as replacing some or all plastic bags, we can as a group make positive changes to our Mother Earth! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should be able to operate a sewing machine and sew straight and curved seams. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Bag measures 19"h x 17"w x 4"d Folded and buttoned 4"h x 7"w x 1"d

Hi, My name is Cathy. Welcome to my pattern store. Sewing has been my passion from the age of 11 when I completed my first project. Coming from a family of 10 children, I learned I could make unique and inexpensive clothing that produced lots of compliments from family and friends. Also, a trip to the fabric store was precious one on one time with Mom! She was my first sewing teacher, collaborator on projects and biggest supporter. I can still hear her say practice makes perfect. And practice I did making clothing, costumes, bridal, window treatments and quilts for family, friends and clients. Eventually I met another teacher, Grace Auditore, who was the retired director of the Auditore School of Design in New York. I met Grace when she was in her mid-eighties and whenever she talked about her school, pattern design, her books, you could hear the excitement in her voice and see her eyes light up and sparkle. She'd say "I just love it!" Thanks to Grace and my Mom, I've been practicing my craft for over 40 years and have taught others to sew over the past 25. I still enjoy completing a sewing project, but especially enjoy teaching others this tremendous skill. So recently, I've taken some of my designs for kids wear and turned them into patterns. Making patterns for kid wear is almost as much fun as the kids themselves and I get to teach at the same time. It doesn't get any better than that!
