    Not really quilting, just modifying a bag to make it custom. :-o We have several of the reusable bags that DH bought on sale 3/$1.00. I take a small piece of fabric and just slap it over the logo on the bag. That way it's custom and that way you won't get it mixed up with anyone else's bag. At 0.33 per bag, you sure can't make one for that price.

    that is an awesome idea. I like your improved bag. You did a great job making a standard very personal. Where do you get the starter bags?

    These are Walgreen's bags.

    Mine have flowery material and DH is a heavy equipment mechanic. I found the loader backhoe fabric recently at a not-so-local LQS.
