Sure you can buy some trendy brand name shopping bags, but why not make your own!
Here’s a knit pattern using a mesh stitch. Nice, big & stretchy! This bag works up quickly and stretches upwards and outwards to hold a large amount of items. Make yourself several and carry in your car for shopping trips and help the environment. A nice present for Mothers day too!
