My goal for April was to make eco-friendly shopping bags.
I thought it would be fun to incorporate some orphan blocks into the project.
I used scrap denim and some quilting blocks for the above shopping bags. I wish I would have thought to take the time to quilt the blocks, but I like the bags anyway.
I may have to give this bag to someone with a small child. At least I remembered to add some quilting to the bag. Ha, ha!
The last bag features a hand-painted orphan block. It was a fun little sample to learn some fabric painting techniques, and I am happy to have found a way to use the block!
These bags are durable, can be washed, and used over and over. They are eco-friendly and more fun to use than plastic grocery sacks!
