When we all go shopping we should do our utmost to resist using plastic bags handed out by the shop. Plastic was an incredible invention but it is doing untold damage to our oceans, environment and wildlife. So do your bit with a reusable fabric shopping bag. In fact, why stop at one? Make enough to carry all your shopping and groceries. Keep a stash of these in the car. They won’t take up much room or be messy because you can neatly fold them up into their own neat pocket for storage.
Here you have a FREE Pattern and Video Tutorial showing you how to make a Foldable Reusable Shopping Bag. The bag is approximately 18″ by 18″ (46cm by 46cm) and folds down so that it will fit into the cover so that you can store it in your main purse/bag.
The Foldable Shopping Bag has four handles to carry it in the hand or hang it on your shoulder. The bag is easy to make and is perfect for the beginner sewer. The pattern has been translated into both English and Spanish.
