Love the idea of reusable grocery bags, but hate the idea of advertising for the store that sold it to you? The solution is to make your own bags. You can make some that advertise your own business, like these Lady Bags, or pick a cute fabric - even recycle an old tablecloth. Generally you can make them for much less than the price of those you would buy in the store. Make a statement about you. You are eco-friendly AND fashion forward. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Appropriate for a beginner with basic sewing skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 171/2 inches tall x 12 inches wide x 7 inches deep. Handles are designed to by held in the hand rather than over the shoulder. If you would rather make a shoulder carry bag, this variation is described at the end of the pattern.
