I totally, I mean totally, espouse this idea of bringing our own bags with us when we go to the store. And since, more often than not despite my wishes to the contrary, my shopping is of the bag-here, bag-there variety rather than one big fell swoop, I'm learning to keep some bags in my car and take one in with me when I stop at Trader Joe's or -- gasp -- Whole Foods on my way home from work.
What I don't like is the type of re-usable bag that we get from both of those places. So it seemed like the thing to do was to make some stylish bags for me and a couple of buddies.
This picture is of the weekend's yield -- two from my William Morris stash. One has already been given away to my house guest who I really never thought of as a bag lady. Until now.
