Don’t overlook the remnant bin when shopping at your favourite fabric outlet. Here are pattern pieces cut from a half yard of graphic canvas I plucked from stock ends.
Here in Toronto we pay five cents if we need a plastic bag, and since my re-usable cloth grocery bag was getting unsightly, I planned to use the black and white circles and stripes to make a new one.
The new bag measures approx. 5″ wide, 13″ high by 11″ across. Perfect roomy fit for magazines and books from the library too.
All I had to do was use my beat-up old bag as a pattern. So copy it, cut it and sew it!
Pieces to cut:
- Main section includes front, bottom and back.
- Double sides.
- Two handles.
- Twin side bindings.
