I'm Not a Plastic Bag

I understand the current RAGE is the UK reusable tote bags - I'm Not a Plastic Bag by British designer Anya Hindmarch. The bags have been exported across the pond and are available in selected stores in Los Angeles, NY and NJ for $15. Or, if you can't wait in the long lines (as this crowd did in NY), you can make your own fabric tote. Visit the Make It Easy site for the free Classic Open Tote pattern. Enjoy!

Thanks for this great link. I enjoy your blog a lot. It's wonderful to shine a spotlight on African American quilters and on some of the politics of contemporary quilting.

oh how bizarre...i have been thinking lately of making my own shopping bags! thanks for the link...i had forgotten that putting the webbing around the whole she-bang would make it stronger.
