Grocery Totes

My friend found this pattern at a quilt shop recently. I spent a few hours this weekend making these Reversible Grocery Totes. The pattern is by Penny Sturges and goes together quickly. The pattern calls for either Cotton Twill Tape handles or fabric handles. I didn't have any twill tape so I made the fabric handles. Tote can be made from 4 fat quarters if you have twill tape. If you make fabric handles, you will need 1 1/2 yards of one fabric.

These are perfect for those little gifts that require mailing. My friend mailed one for less than $2.00.

What a great scrap project too! Amazing the things you can make out of a fat quarter! One can never have too many bags.
