Reduce, Reuse

Contrary to what my most recent posts would suggest, I'm not much of one to go in for crafty swaps. But when it's my guild or a fantastic gal like Amy, who can say no? Amy has hosted a number of swaps called Potholder Pass on flickr, and when she invited me to join, I saw there was an option to make reusable grocery sacks.
This is so much cuter than the store bought ones, right? The pattern is by Keyka Lou, and it makes a great size. It is also reversible. I found all three fabrics at Joann's, believe it or not. Next time I try it, I'll use home dec weight fabric and interface the handles. Now I just need to stuff this bag with some extras and send it off to my secret swap partner.

Cute! I have a load of those boring store bought ones... maybe I should replace them with nice ones!
