Shopping Bag Tutorial - Part Two

Fabric Shopping Bag

Well I know in future to finish a tutorial so that I have the finished item on the first post or you won't know what it is all about.

Many years ago I did buy quite a bit of the Hambours Fabrics to make clothes for my family. The fabric for this shopping bag, as well as two other bags are products from that leftover collection that resides in my cupboard. The bags work out at $1.00 each.

I am the first to say this shopping bag isn't pretty but it is practical and most of all, cheap! No stripes or pattern match and at the time I really wasn't concerned about it because it wasn't originally for a tutorial, plus I wanted to get as many bags as possible out of the material. Hey thats another reason to finish a project before making it into a tutorial, not that the pattern is 'stripe' friendly.

I do have many photos to edit and post here so watch this spot for the final installment of this shopping bag.

Until then, happy sewing!

Edit: After completing this tutorial I am adding the following links to make it easier to find all posts for the Shopping Bag.

This is a nice bag for shopping because of the color, it wont show the dirt easily.

Thanks Susan, the bag will more than likely be left in the farm ute for DH to use for the odd food items that he picks up for me when he is in town picking up odds and ends for the farm. The trick will to keep it clean..... maybe a plastic container with lid.
