Then, I made bags with watermelons, strawberries, pears, cowgirls and more. I loved the way the watermelon bag lined with strawberries turned out. My original motive for making the bags was that I was always forgetting my cloth bags for groceries in the car. About the checkout stand, I would remember them. They were a motley assortment of freebie bags that were, well, just plain ugly. I thought, if the bags were cute, I wouldn't forget them in the the car. You know, I usually don't forget them now! The bags turned out so cute, that I made some for Christmas gifts. My sister says hers are too nice to use!
I just love them and now when the checker at the grocery store asks me, "Paper or plastic?", I reply, I have my own bags, thank you!
