To Market


I've started utilizing re-usable grocery bags when doing my shopping, and I love eliminating the clutter of plastic bags, as well as helping the environment. I still haven't found a solution to the plastic produce bags, but this little market bag above is a first attempt at creating something re-usable, practical, and pretty (of course!) for holding fruits and vegetables. I modified a wonderful pattern from Knittique.com, making shorter handles, and held two strands of linen yarn together to make it really strong. Now, I think it's just about perfect for carrying those heavy fruits and vegetables. This one in the picture is destined for a new friend, so I have to get busy making more for myself!

What a cool bag! I have been using reusable shopping bags but still using plastic for my produce. What a great idea.
