Last year, I made some reusable shopping bags that I shipped off to loved ones for the holidays
It's from a fantastic pattern I picked up at a local quilt shop, but which you may purchase here, if you're so inclined.
While I was sad to see them go, I knew I'd make more, I just didn't know (though I should have) that making 12 of the same item is a special kind of torture for me. It's not that they are hard or laborious or anything, it's just, well, more and more of the same thing.
But after sitting on these half finished bags for months, I finally found the motivation to finish them up, in all their glorious adorableness.
And seriously, how fricken cute is this fabric?
I believe it's now discontinued so you'd have to hunt around if you wanted to get some. it's called Woodlands from Anthology and I made the whole set with 1 half-yard bundle of the entire line, along with a few yards of bleached muslin to line the bags.
And before you ask, yes, I still knit. I even have proof:
This one isn't even a deadline project, just something that might end up being self published.
