Green Shopping Bags, part 2

And here it is, my second green shopping bag! I’m very proud of it. I made this from a pattern in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Quiltmaker. I used squares of the vegetables fabrics Helene gave me for Christmas as the focus prints. The directions have you use duck cloth as a foundation, which gives it stability. It also has a cotton fabric lining, although I don’t think you’d have to make one. The duck cloth works well enough, but having a separate lining gives it a slightly more finished look.

This is a reusable shopping bag I made recently from a Debbie Mumm panel I got at Jo-Ann’s. It was easy to do, and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I added a lining to give the inside a slightly more “finished” look.
