Reusable Shopping Bags

Have you ever gotten one of these not so cute but functional bags?  Why not make it cute?
No offense Eagle Mountain, but my husband is on city council in a neighboring city :)

These flowers are so easy.  Tear a 1-2 inch strip of fabric off a 45 inch width fabric.  The wider the bigger the flower.  Run a basting stitch 1/4" from one edge.
Gather, then tie off the basting stitches on each end so the ruffle will hold.  Spiral the strip around and secure with a few stitches on the back.

I attached the flowers to the bag using a yarn needle and ribbon through the center of the flower.  I did use a bit of fabric glue to make sure the flowers fully covered up the logo.

  1. Reusable bags are becoming more and more popular. These accessories can be both eco friendly as well as stylish. These bags are biodegradable and can be used for promotional events, to fundraise, or for businesses that really want to market themselves in a socially responsible manner. Thanks a lot.
