Cloth Shopping and Produce Bags (with pics!)
Friday September 07th, 2007 08:21 AM
This summer a group of my online friends did a swap with the theme "try a new craft" - mine was embroidery. It took me half the summer to figure out what to embroider, once I did that everything else went quickly. Now I want to embroider all of my cloth grocery bags!

This was my "test" project - the kitty pattern on the tea towel that came with the Stitch It kit.

I decided to make my swap partner reusable produce bags. I got the idea from my swap partner last year, but I embellished mine (they are made out of flour sacks) with embroidery. I ordered the cute vegetable patterns from Sublime Stitching, along with some other cute ones for future projects. I also knit and crocheted the cords.

Since the produce bags didn't take as long as I thought they would I decided to also do a grocery bag.

I liked the idea of the two popular tattoo designs on the bag (both the heart and the sparrow stencils are included in the "Stitch It" kit.

Weird... Every spot where there should be a picture, it just says "null."
