A while back while blog surfing I ran across a tutorial for a shopping bag made from a vintage pillowcase. This evening the urge to sew won out over the need to kick my feet up and relax, and I looked up the tutorial and made one. I am pleased enough with the results to share the tutorial with you. Like it or not we’re all going to need something to carry our groceries in in the future…likely the near future. This project is a perfect answer to that need…one that allows for the expression of individual taste while reusing things you likely have around the house.
The Vintage Pillowcase Grocery Tote Tutorial is easy to follow and well written. Here are my results…
I started with a pretty Ralph Lauren pillowcase that had seen far better days. (It was so pretty I couldn’t see throwing it away or turning it into a dusting cloth.)
Hanging view…empty and sagging, but you can get the idea of how the straps are set up.
and a little homemade tag…(very primitive)
I thank Spidey for the use of her tutorial and can see where making more could likely happen. If you try the tutorial (and I hope you will) why not let Spidey know you did…I’d love to hear about it, too.
Until next time…
