Handy Stuffable Shopper Where I live, plastic bags are going away, and while I'm good for grocery bags, it struck me at the drugstore that I am not good for little items that could use a bag. After staring at the little plastic bag I got, inspiration struck and here it is. Takes a 12 by 24*rectangle of something lightweight (I used a nylon piece from Daiso, but anything scrunchable will do) and an elastic hairband (once again, a touch of Hello Kitty creeps into my life, but a regular one would probably be more portable). Cuts and sews in much less than an hour. *any size but it should fold to make a square. Please, post photos of your completed bags! Let's see what this baby can do! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sew a straight line SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 12 by 12

Some of my patterns are on hiatus while I redo their art and PDFs to make them more efficient and useful. Thanks for your interest, and let's make the good stuff better. We can sew our way out of this! Been doing that for over forty years (my momma started me early). I am most interested in functional and efficient patterns that can be made up quickly that result in items that make life easier and are fun to use. Always up for a design challenge, I'm game for commissions. Let's make something good!
