Green Shopping Bags, part 2

by Nancy

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.

    These shopping bags are great, Nancy! Possibly something to add to your repertoire for Nancy’s Quilts for Kids (and moms). Are they the same size as the commercial bags that are available in grocery stores? I’ll have to check out the pattern in Quiltmaker. I missed it somehow. They look quick and easy and a fun way to play with fabric and end up with a very useful product. Cool!
