A Bag

Picture_436_4

I have been wanting to make some bags for shopping. I have heavy plastic-coated ones for groceries but they are too bulky for the mall and such. I had several ideas then, I saw Debbie's market sacks. What a brilliant idea and she inspired me. Mine is a little different from Debbie's. I put a inverted-box pleat in on each side and added a firm bottom. I like wide bags, because it makes it nice to really see what in in your bag. I am still hoping to make one I can fold up and carry in my purse. Thank you Debbie for the inspiration xoxox
