    I recycled a few pet food bags that are a plastic type fabric, good size for the family packs of meat and I can flip them inside out and spray with vinegar/water solution when I'm done.

    On my "to do soon list" is to make an extra large, Lt. weight tote for pop cans and bottles. We return cans/bottles to the grocery store to get deposits back, I much rather we eliminate the whole deposit thing and the recyle company take them away.

    Terrific bags! They are so pretty and bright that you probably don't mind the overpriced grocery goods you put in just right. Thanks for sharing.

    Take one of your plasic bags that you get from the grocery store, lay it flat, cut off the bottom straight across, and then open up the sides, leaving the handles in tact. Open up the plastic bag from the bottom Now you have a pattern for making a cloth bag with handles from your stash - I make mine about 5 - 6 inches longer than the pattern, you can also make your lining from this plastic pattern. I made my granddaughter a couple to carry her tap shoes and dance clothes.

    I swear the plastic gets thinner and thinner! The cloth bags are #1 prettier, #2 are reliable, and most importantly-better for the environment. nice job!
