Description

Why wasting so much plastic when you can use a beautiful, personalized, cotton shopping bag?
I made several of these bags, for me, for friends and on request.

This one is a present for the mother of my boyfriend: it’s made with IKEA fabric (BRITTEN DÖRR) representing different doors with numbers, some doors are black/white and some are partly colored.
The lining is taken from a light-yellow IKEA pillowcase because I didn’t find another fabric with the right color.

The first picture shows the front (with my label “RobyGiup handmade” on the top), the second picture is the bag folded.

    Oh, like the Ecosax! I love them and have several of them always in my handbags, as they are so practical! This is a great present, especially in that fabric!

      I agree!!! :)
      I already realized several for friends, and now I’m planning to sew other two for my sister who is going to move in her new home!
