The designer has been meaning to design a eco-friendly reusable shopping bag for some time time now. She wanted a lightweight convenient design that she could carry many bags inside a small lightweight carrying case and pull out as many as she needed.
Eliminating bulky lining was the first step without compromising the strength of the bag. French seams was one of the aspects to make this happen. French seams are super easy to do and really give a bag extra strength with no exposed seams. The set is all machine washable which is super important due to carrying foods that can spill or leak.
This excellent pattern includes a full size pattern to download and print as well as seven pages of instructions including full color pics of the actual bag and carrying case in progress with tips to help.
