Insulated Grocery Tote Bag FREE sewing pattern & tutorial

Here’s a unique FREE pattern and tutorial for an Insulated Grocery Tote Bag. Why is it unique? Because the pattern designer has used a “reflective car shade” as the insulation part. Who would have guessed! But if it insulates your car then why not use it to insulate a bag. We love it when sewers think outside the box and come up with innovative ideas.

This bag is pretty big and measures 19″ by 16″ by 7″. Please note that you should not wash this bag in a washing machine.  Spot clean only.

There’s lots to love about this bag, including the really strong covered rope handles. Yes, you can’t see in the picture, but the handles are a heavy cord on the inside of a fabric sleeve. Makes this ideal for carrying a big bag of frozen food home from the grocery store.
