BYOB ~ Bring Your Own Bags

Using fabric shopping bags is a simple way to reduce waste and help the environment...not to mention that they are sturdier and prettier than plastic bags. Making your own shopping bags is also a great way to use those fabrics that you thought you couldn't live without and haven't yet used (and probably never will). TipNut.com has compiled a list of 35 Reusable Grocery Bag Patterns and all can be made with very little cost and effort. The pattern that I used for the bags pictured here is the Singlet Style Shopping Bag. It took about a yard of fabric total and a little less than an hour to make one bag...a small sacrifice for what the benefits will be. Just one fabric bag can replace thousands of throwaway bags over its lifetime!
