It’s been a long time since I went to the grocery store. A long long loooong time. This weekend I had the chance to go to the grocery store sans children. Which was happy in and of itself. (If you have regularly taken 3 children to the store you’ll understand!) But what was even more happy was using my super duper crazy cute grocery bags I made.
I used Heather Bailey‘s New Leaf Folding Tote bag pattern.
And Lizzy House‘s 1001 Peeps in the Basra Blue colorway.
I didn’t make any changes to the bag pattern – but I did use a solid fabric for the lining inside (less expensive that way! And it’s the inside of the bag so no biggie, right?) I used the Towers Print for the band that wraps around the bags. It made me very happy. So perfect. In order to get the towers to fit as I wanted, I widened width of the band.
Isn’t it fun the way they all fold up? I may make it to the grocery store more often since I have these happy bags. I was also thinking of some of these bags as gifts for teachers. (School is starting. Christmas will be here sooner than we think!) What do you think? Okay gifts? Maybe with something else grocery related….anyway I have time to think about it!
