Paper or Plastic? Cotton!

Tonight I went to a sewing class at the local fabric shop. We made environmentally friendly shopping bags that fold into themselves for easy storage. The bags are much sturdier than those for sale at supermarkets.

I chose to sew a floral fabric as the lining. My sewing skills are improving and these bags will make great holiday gifts.

The bags fold into themselves because of the large outside pocket. Folded, they conveniently fit into a glove compartment or handbag.
