To market, to market…

April 22–it’s Earth Day. I’m making grocery totes…reusable, washable, reversible. I used, as a pattern, one that I received several years ago. One that I keep tucked and rolled up in my purse. One that, in fact, the local grocery clerk asks me if I have with me…she’s so used to me whipping that bag out for my purchases. Like most of the other bags I sew, each grocery tote gets “tweaked” as I think about them. The first ones I made were great…simple and sturdy. The next ones were better…reversible! And the one I made today is reversible, but one side is waterproof, too! To market, to market, to buy a fat…fish? bunch of berries? And, as I was stitching this one up, I was thinking that it wouldn’t be all that difficult to add an inner lining like I use in the lunch bags…a grocery tote that’s sturdy, and reversible, and insulated! And pretty, too!!
