The family was up in Ottawa for Thanksgiving and I stopped into a dollar store to twack about. I found a reusable shopping bag made out of cheap canvas and fell in love with it. I walked out of the store carrying my new roomy bag. I sat down later to check out the inner workings of it, created a pattern and set out to recreate.
My first attempt is below, needs some tweaking to the pattern and I may switch the sides and bottom canvas over to a lighter canvas blend. The thick canvas was not easy to work with, even with an upgraded needle and thread.
