Sew a pretty & practical grocery bag using this simple SEWING PATTERN (3 sizes).

This is the most popular pattern in my shop. The bags are easy to make, take only about an hour to sew (1 hour each size), and you will use them ALL THE TIME.

The bag is a "t-shirt" style bag with the handles placed from front to bag along the sides. This is the grocery industry standard because the handle placement allows the bag to be hung on a rack for loading.

This bag is designed with separate handles so it can be sewn like any other lined handbag.

The finished bags are:

• Easy to load - fits on bag holders used by many stores.
• Easy to carry - wide handles distribute weight.
• Simple to clean - machine wash & dry.
• Folds to a nice size - easy to pack inside another bag.
• Reversible - line in a second fun fabric.
• Fully lined - looks great and makes the bag twice as sturdy.
• Durable - double stitched seams & reinforced handles.

This pattern is a paper & ink friendly 7 pages. There are 5 pages of text and color photo instructions + 2 pages black and white pattern pieces. Handle pattern pieces are included, and then the bag body is a square you will draw directly on your fabric (dimensions given).
