Too cute for cabbage?

See... I fall in love with delicious fabrics.

Then I get all practical and say "I should make a grocery bag- with these fabrics, it will be way cuter than those cheap store bought totes."
So I do. And it IS cute.
In fact, I used lots of cute, as the bag is lined with cute, and has different fabrics on either side of the outer. And even more in an orphan block turned pocket.

But now I don't want to put wet and smelly things in. But I really want to show it off!

If you decide to make a tote, don't forget to inlude a side loop for a bottle of wine. Next time, I will probably use a velcro closure. Maybe. Also- put a little loop at the top of the back so the bag can be held upright on those plastic bag dispensers at the store.

Yes this bag is cute you will have to make another not as cute to put the wet things in :)

Great bag -- and thanks for the tip about the loop for the bags to hang on at the grocery store. My biggest complaint about homemade bags is that they don't stand open by themselves, and this solves the problem.

Thanks jovaliquilts- that loop thing was a tip by the woman at the grocery when I told her I was making a bag. :)

You're right! Cute! I wonder if there's a way for us to line our beautiful grocery bags with something waterproof...
