Easy to Make Market Tote

The grocery, and drug stores in the county can no longer provide plastic bags for customers. Now while that’s a good thing, I do find it mildly irritating that they must charge ten cents for each paper bag provided to the customer. So even though I have (and use) several large canvas bags for grocery shopping, I was still finding myself without a bag when I stopped at the store unexpectedly. To make sure that I always had a bag when needed, I made a few more of my Market Totes to keep in my purse. Two of them fit nicely in a little zippered pouch, but I also found that that I could use the left over U shaped scrap to make a small, open ended pouch for the bag.

This is a very simple bag to make, and it requires only 1/2 yard of fabric. I’m sharing this pattern…yep, it’s FREE.

    Thank you for your pattern, it’s really easy to understand and also quick to sew. Although I have nothing against plastic bags (and I don’t like unreasonable government restrictions…), these bags from your pattern are really comfortable.

    Thank you for sharing this. I have been looking for a pattern for my sewing class that was easy and usable. This is the one I will be using.
