The Green Bag Lady has sewn and given away more than 5,600 reusable tote bags, just because she cares. (In fact, if you head over to her blog now, she has a giveaway going on until Saturday.) After I received my Green Bag Lady tote in the mail, I decided to try to make some of my own using her helpful pattern and YouTube how-to video. Here's my first attempt:I used Mexican oil cloth that I got on the cheap from the Etsy shop RR Mexico Supply. (On second look, I see that they offer the following: "If there is something you need or want from Mexico and we don't have it already in the shop, just send us a convo and we might be able to get it for you. We have contacts and friends in may parts of Mexico, so even if we cannot find what you want in our town we can get it from other places at an additional cost."
Hmm. Not sure that's on the up-and-up, but oh well!
Anyway, my first tote bag attempt is far from perfect, but it would be a good little shopping or library bag. I need more practice for sure, so I'm giving away this one away to someone who can overlook its imperfections. Just leave a comment on this post, and I'll pick a new home for the tote bag on Friday night.
