    Star Wars Fabric Market Bag

    My son is visiting and since he lives in California he needs his own grocery bags.

    When he turned 40 I made him a Stars Wars fabric quilt - had plenty of leftovers.

    This is the Joann's Market Bag pattern - only I made it out of cotton fabric and added batting and a lining for stability. I think I ended up with shorter handles on this one.

    C3PO and R2D2 look pretty good!

    Great way to use leftover fabric. I live here in CA and so far it is only certain cities but I am sure that in the future, the entire state will ban plastic bags. Some people will be totally shocked.

    I made my son his own couch quilt for his 40th -all kinds of Star Wars fabrics and a pillow to match. It was to replace the one I made him when he was little. His oldest GD has the original
