As we see how plastic and other disposable grocery bags pollute our environment, let’s take a few steps forward to using reusable eco- friendly bags for our grocery shopping.
Let us be responsible humans and show good examples to our kids and reduce the use of things that harm our ecosystem.
Though I sew a lot, I love easy and quick projects to sew. I take a few hours off from designing dresses to sewing simple things that give me great joy and satisfaction. I try to choose colorful and vibrant fabrics that make the end product pretty enough.
This easy reusable reversible grocery bag sewing pattern is one such DIY project I love. This is a very easy bag tutorial, that will give you double the results for the time you spent on sewing it.
This reversible grocery bag is a fun project that is sure to lift up your spirits this season. This market bag comes with optional pockets, that is again a bonus. You can add pockets to just one side (as I did) or both sides.
This is a quick- sew tote style bag, that requires a few rectangular pieces of fabric and a few straight line stitches. Doesn’t it sound like a perfect beginner sewing project?
You can make this bag by recycling your clothes, bed sheets, or pillowcases. Just cut the pieces in the given dimensions and sew as directed. Change the dimensions of the fabric pieces to be cut and you can make it in different sizes.
