The fastest version – a 20-minute shopping bag!
It uses only one fabric. You don’t need more than 20 minutes to sew this simplified version. You could stitch them with a flat bottom. I love this version, it takes little space in your purse.
Or you could box the bottom for a more spacious bag.
The best gifts you could sew for family or friends!
These bags are so practical, everyone needs a few. Five years ago I stitched a few shopping bags for my sisters and a few friends and they are still in use.
From two yards of home decor fabric (54” wide) you can sew four assorted shopping bags.
A new reason to use that heavyweight fabric that you already have in your stash!
One half yard of fabric- one bag.
Use your favorite fabrics and you can be sure that you will not forget your bags in the car or at home! You will want to use them all the time.

It’s stylish, strong and faux leather is inexpensive. It is easy to add lining to your bag to cover the wrong side of the faux leather – instructions are included.
