Quilt With Us

Here in Australia plastic shopping bags ( heavy duty ones) will be banned from  November. A lot of us are using environmental bags - ie not plastic. I converted a navy blue like this green one to a pretty shopping/supermarket bag. And I still have scraps left over!! LOL Quite a change - it will hold her 30th birthday gifts - well some of them.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments - the ribbon is actually bias binding I bought many, many years ago when my 30 something children were in primary school. The orange has been sewn in between the seams while the green was on top of the piece. Now to make one or 2 or 3 for me.

Love the scrap bag and the ribbon really added a very special touch.

Your bag is pretty , and much better than the enviro bags they offer.

                                                                                                                                                                      we here have been using them for 4 yrs now in Ontario we have had to pay for plastic bags it seems for

  ever, and they don't last a second time as they are so thin .

  I make my bags as well easy as pie.

I've been using cloth bags for shopping too. As soon as I have enough of DH's discarded jeans, these will be repurposed into shopping bags.

Nice bag Sandy, I agree we all should be using these and doing away with the plastic ones.

Very pretty...congrats to your country for stopping the use of plastic...wish it were a national law here. We have used cloth bags for years.
