Shopping bags in progress, thought it would be fun to see them in action.
I use my basic sewing supplies to make the bags, and the pattern template I made drafted from an actual plastic bag. I rounded corners and made the handles and opening symmetrical. Pins, rotary cutter and scissors to complete cutting.
This pieces that has been removed is about 5 x 6 and becomes the pocket on the drawstring bag.
I can *almost* say I used every inch of this fabric. In the end I had about 1 inch leftover.
