    Found a great way to use up about a yard per bag for a reusable shopping bag. These are intended to be folded and kept in your purse so when you go shopping, you don't have to bring home any more plastic bags! you have your own "Go" bag.
    I thought they would make good gifts for my quilter friends, and then got carried away! I think I have made about 30 of them so far, and I haven't noticed my stash getting smaller! They take about half an hour each to make. The hardest part is determining which fabrics to use!

    Made some smaller bags for the younger kids in the family!

    Cute idea for stash busting. Did you have a pattern or make up your own?

    Great bags, thanks for sharing the photos and reminding us all to reduce and reuse.

    I love reusable bags, but I have a hard time remembering to take them in the store with me. I keep them in the trunk of my car and can't seem to remember them until I am in the checkout line. Does anyone have a method they use to remind themselves to take the bags into the store?

    We keep ours in the back seat where we're more likely to see them. To me, in the trunk would be outta sight, outta mind.

    I love your bags!!! I have been trying, (clumsily with a bum hand) to sew grocery totes for gifts for my son and his g/f for christmas. The way that they remember to use them is keeping them next to the back door, (they park out back of their apartment), that way they never forget to grab them on the way out to go shopping. Just thought that I would add my 2 cents in. Thank you for listening.
