Let's talk about reusing...

Reusable bags were something I put off for awhile. When I did finally get some, I loved them! I just bought the 99 cent ones at Safeway and they worked fine for awhile.

Then, this happened to one of them:

I wasn't very happy about it! But the bags are pretty thin and probably won't stand up for much longer.

So, I made one of my own from some heavy duty fabric I found at Goodwill.

It's a little bigger than the Safeway ones and the straps are thicker. I like it, I just need to get some more material to make more. It works way better than the other bags! I'm pretty proud of it since I made it without a pattern!

  1. Very nice! I recently made a bag a lot like that for a friends wedding gift! I'm going to use it as the giftbag, then they can use it for whatever they want!
    Also, my one of my reusable bags also ripped. But I just sewed it back up. (And reinforced all the seams while I was at it!)
