grocery bags

I was given a bit of heavier fabric (canvas?) and since I usually make clothes, I had no idea what to make with it.  But a thought struck - grocery bags!  I prefer to use reusable bags, and the ones I have a ugly and dirty, and would likely fall apart when washed.  But not anymore!

Being creative is not a hobby, it is a way of life.

If eating cake is wrong I don't want to be right.

I followed the pattern and instructions from Stitched by Crystal, although I made the pattern slightly bigger since I wasn't working with fat quarters.  They were quick and easy - so easy that my sister, who is brand new at sewing, was able to make two for herself.  I had never sewn french seams before, but would gladly do them again.
