I don't know if I have told you that I don't like plastic shopping bags, but that is how it is - I don't like plastic shopping bags!
Hence that, I avoid plastic bags when I can, but when it is appropriate I bring used plastic shopping bags so I don't have to keep a cupboard full here at home - and save some money too.
Christmas shopping calls for a Christmas shopping bag, don't you think ? :-)
This one is my latest creation, complete with an open inside pocket, a fabric chain for a carabine hook where you can keep your keys or money purse - or as here, where I have attached a zipper closed pocket which also doubles as a makeup purse.
You can close the shopping bag with a loop and a button if you like.
I have chosen to put the loop from the front and back so it is not so easy to put a hand inside the bag.
The shopping bag is not very big - 15" wide and 14" high, with a 3" bottom.
I am a smallish lady - a huge shopping bag would be uncomfortable to carry around.
If you would like to have one of my patterns, please leave a message on this post, and if you can, post about it on your blog too.
If you don't have a blog, use the envelope under this post and send me a message, and I will add your name to the drawing.
I'll draw 2 names next Monday.
Edit: I will include an English translation if needed, and I have no limits to where I am sending :-)
