pinspiration | reusable totes

Last week as I was heading out to another scouts meeting with my pile of papers shoved into a tacky supermarket reusable bag, I knew I had to stop talking and start doing! If you browse pinterest like I do, then you pick a topic and pin eleventy-billion examples of your idea. All the tutorials boil down to the same basic principles, but seeing all the fabric loveliness is more likely to get you started. This is one such collection.

When I first saw this tutorial, I thought the bags were made from tea towels. I still have that idea stuck in my head.

I have plenty of plain calico bags that could do with a bit of glamming.

Do you use reusable bags for your shopping? Did you make them yourself?
