Going Green

Over the weekend I had a sudden burst of inspiration to make a grocery bag.  I used this tutorial here, but I obviously modified it to only use one piece of fabric for the exterior.  I highly recommend this tutorial and I will definitely use it again.  The fabric is a piece of canvas that I have had for years - now I want to find more and make a whole set!  It's by Jessica Jones of How About Orange, from her very first line.  I lined it with 2 plain white cotton dishtowels I had bought at Target on clearance.  I also put a pocket on the inside, for coupons, keys, etc.  I used my bag this week and I'm happy to report it fit a bunch of groceries with no trouble!  I'm planning on whipping up a mini version for small purchases and if I can find more of this fabric, I will definitely buy it and make more larger versions as well :)
