    How to make re-usable shopping bags?

    Advertisements
    Does anyone have a pattern for reusable shopping bags. I just want a basic pattern, like the ones you can buy at walmart. I just don't want one with a store logo on it (I feel weird using them in other stores). Plus I think i could probably make them for cheaper.

    Also what kind of material would you recommend?

    Yeah probably. Really any thick durable fabric should be fine, i would think. I just need the pattern! I have to sew it by hand though, so they might not look so nice

    What about an oilcloth kind of fabric? It would be really durable and there are some cute prints.

    I have a pattern - need to dig it up and will be happy to share.

    For material: I made a bag out of flannel, but I don't recommend it for anything except lighter stuff. For regular use, I would look for something more durable, like canvas for example.
    11 months down.... ??? months to go. Will it EVER end?!

    I don't have a pattern, but I suggest using oilcloth. It's like a laminated fabric that is resistant to spills and such. You can google it and find some really cute patterned cloth....try www.etsy.com.

    If you're using it for clothes or homewares, you can use something like a sturdy linen or canvas fabric. But oilcloth is ideal for groceries.
