Say it with an Austin Power's accent for the intended effect. My husband loves my bags so much (grocery bags, that is), that he suggested I make them in a masculine fabric so he could take a bag or two to the hardware store. Ask and you shall receive. Using a set of tab curtains a friend gave me, and feeling slightly like Scarlet O'Hara, I made my husband his very own reusable canvas bag. I can just imagine him walking out of the hardware store, two by fours slung over one shoulder, and a canvas bag in hand, filled with nails, screws and a tube of caulk.
A bag for him, and a bag for you. The lucky winner is:
Hooray for Alice! Alice may not sew, but she makes the cutest charms and is an amazing artist. Check out her Etsy shop.
If anyone is interested in making their own reusable grocery bags, this is the tutorial I used to get started. A few tweaks here and there, and now my groceries ride in style. Using reusable grocery bags is like shopping with coupons. You have to bring them into the store with you and it's nice to hand them to the clerk before they bag your groceries. It's worth the effort as I see my plastic and paper bag stash dwindling.
Thank you everyone who entered my first contest. It was so much fun, I will definitely do it again. Perhaps a "Guess the Number of Acorns In This Bucket" contest. They are beginning to fall with gusto. Enjoy your day off, and don't work too hard.
