more reusable grocery bags

After making my own reusable grocery bags (you can find the pattern here) I thought they would make a fun birthday gift for my mother-in-law.

This was the perfect excuse to buy a couple of the pretty Emmy Grace floral prints that I had my eye on and I paired them with Kona curry and Kona ash for the lining and handles.

Since I had used canvas for my bags I was curious how the quilting cotton would feel, but they seem just as sturdy.  

I have been using my own bags regularly and love them, it is a great pattern.  

You can find these gorgeous Emmy Grace prints here, here, and here.

  6. I bought this same pattern and made lots of bags. They were a great stashbuster, even used up some old drape panels. My mother is 78 and hard to buy for. I made her 3 of these for Mothers Day in a pretty sunflower fabric. She loved them! She says the handles on these don't hurt her hands like the plastic bags do. I really like that these can be washed. Your bags are really pretty.
