    I have a wedding shower coming up so I made four grocery bags for the bride-to-be. She is a dog lover so had to throw some of that fabric in :lol: They are all lined with the black and white dots. I hope she will like them!

    Those are awesome! I have some of the store bought ones...they are not as nice as yours...but I try to use them most of the time. :) Maybe if I made some like that, I'd want to show them off and bring them all the time.

    May I ask if you used a pattern for these. Would you care to share the pattern or link? These are very nice and I think I really have to make some.

    I make shopping bags from rummage sale pants and skirts. They are fantastic. You can spill pickle juice or ice cream and they wash like a dream. They are as tough as nails and are next to indestructible. And cheap if you get to a $5 bag sale. Room for at least 10 pr of pants, more skirts, and if you're lucky enough to find shorts, you can put in about 20 into a $5 bag

    Yes...I am curious too. What a great idea and I love that you made them reflect an interest of the recipient!
    She will love them!
