Of course more of the Michelle Patterns Grocery Bags that I've been making lately.
This one's a medium size as I wanted a little left over tree fabric from my half yard. I wish I bought more of it.
The lining fabric is a very thin weight cotton from Spotlight (no, not a remnant!). I love scratchy look black fabric, but I wish it was a heavier weight though. The trees are from Robert Kaufman's City Centre range.
I also made the smallest size in blue.
Blue spot from Spotlight a couple of years ago and floral fabric from a Big W remnant.
Here's a size comparison:
I'm still loving the pattern and I love sewing it on my Singer 222k. Beautiful little stitches (as long as the bobbin's wound well!). I should make a bag to actually fit the Singer in as the box she came in has truly had it (she's been living in a plastic bag of late). I've heard people use cooler bags to store them in as they're padded. I might look into that and toss the unusable broken box.
By the way, my Janome is no longer in time out due to it's self sewing behaviour - I worked out the foot pedal was on an uneven bit of flooring and that caused the poltergeist sewing. Put the pedal on nice flat floor and all seems well (for now). I've put her away so that my other machines get a look in (and therefore a little maintenance) every now and then.
So, should I make some more of these? I usually have about eight 'green' bags with me when I do my weekly shop, so a few more won't hurt right? I can use my ugliest fabric that will never be a quilt!
