Going ‘green’ w/ fabric shopping bags
Just wanted to share something. Nothing new since I know many others have already done similar things. Hearing that stores may start charging for bags in the future, I decided to get some fabric and start making bags……..for us and for our family. I found cotton drill (60″ wide) at JoAnnETC that sells for $3.99/yd and w/ my 40% off coupon that makes some cheap fabric! I got two bags out of the width and cut it 1.25/yd. in length. Stitched across the bottom at the 3″ mark to give it a 6″ bottom and put handles of webbing on. Very easy and quick………added a small embroidery for identification and viola……..a tough re-usable bag. It ended up being just about the same size as a paper grocery sack. I figure I’ve got about $3 per bag……..not bad since they should last for a very long time and when dirty, they can go in the wash.
Well………..so much for pictures……..did batteries in camera! Guess my description will do.
