Save the Planet Veggie Bags

Created By:

Skill Level: Intermediate

Spring is coming, and this means our farmers’ markets and grocery stores will soon be bursting with fresh crops of our favorite fruits and veggies. You probably already have a collection of re-usable shopping bags handy, but with just one yard of fabric, you can make six assorted re-usable, washable bags to use when you shop for produce. It’s a small gesture to using a little less plastic!

This is also a wonderful bag to celebrate Earth Day!

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
