April OMG 2017 Update

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.

Shopping Bags

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!
