My Favorite Shopping Bag


Just a quick post to show off the cute bag I whipped up this afternoon. I picked up the awesome elephant fabric at an estate sale last weekend. The elephants are felted. I made it reversible with a teal and brown plaid on the inside and a contrasting pocket. I am going to make another and then donate them to the guild for the quilt show silent auction.

I made a couple of these bags for myself several years ago from an Ikea curtain I found at Goodwill for $2. I still use them every time I shop. I found the pattern at in a post from 5/16/2011.

Come on, you know you want some too! They are adorable AND functional!
