Now Aren't Those Pretty?

See I did it again!  I really thought I had just posted something and then I actually looked at the date...hummmm, Sunday.  Not good I tell ya!

Since I am pretty sure you all are tired of hearing me go on and on and on about packing things in tubs and organizing and purging, let's move on to something a bit different for today.

I have some of those reusable grocery bags you can buy for $1.  You know, the kind that have the store's logo on them, so you pay to advertise for them.  I know people who buy different ones for different stores because they feel weird about using a Meijer bag at Walmart...anyway.

So mine are black, which was a good start.  And the logo wasn't too big on them either.  But after about 2 years, I am just tired of them.  So on Monday when The Women Who Keep Me Sane and I went to civilization, I bought some really fun fabric to cover those suckers!

And boy do they look cute!  Although one of my former students told me I will get weird looks for these bags.  What do you think?


  1. Love it! Was it easy to sew on that plastic-ish material they make them out of?

  2. SO CUTE! Why don't I ever think of these things? Have I ever told you that you are brilliant?

  3. Liz, mine aren't that plasticy...I have washed them a couple of times which have softened them up, but I think they were more fabric than plastic to begin with

    Thanks Bridget!

  4. What a great idea!! My mom made me some that look almost just like plastic bags, and she added a pocket to the front..I used it for coupons once or twice, but there needs to be a zipper or something b/c they just kept falling absolutely adore reusable bags b/c they're great for everything! I use them for diaper bags real quick since the girls are older and we don't need bottles to cart along, I use them to take foot to potlucks or family dinners, just everything! But back to your bags, I LOVE the material, and I don't think you'll get laughed at at all...I'd ask you where you got them if I saw you out! :) lol...

  5. Those are FANTASTIC. If someone laughs just kick them. or not. Ok there was TOOOO much preschooler time for me today, can you tell?


You are clever, tell me whatcha think!
