When ever possible I bring my own reusable bags to the market and always carry a extra bag in my purse. Sometimes I find myself stopping at the market for that one item for dinner and I don't have my stash of bags, so I carry one in my purse. I found this great tutorial by Beth on SewMamaSew. This tutorial was wonderful, easy to follow, I have been sewing for most of my life but recently in the last two years really dove into, and her instructions were so easy! This is the first one I made but I think it turned out great. I still need to work on sewing in a straight line! This bag is a great way to keep myself from using plastic bags once. Thanks!
