To the Market 14 Grocery Bag Pattern Ideas

Sustainable and reusable grocery bags are more popular than plastic and paper bags these days. Everyone seems to be using recyclable grocery bags to cart their treats home from the grocery store. Unlike those pesky plastic bags you receive at the store, however, you have to buy your reusable bags. Why not be extra-crafty (and sustainable) by using our easy bag patterns to create your own DIY reusable grocery bags? There is no reason to buy bag after bag when you can use a grocery bag pattern to make your very own bags. Plus, if you make your very own grocery bag pattern, they will be extra sturdy. All of the easy bag patterns and tutorials in To the Market: 14 Grocery Bag Patterns make fabulous totes to take to the market or grocery store. Whether you are browsing the aisles of your local supermarket or the stalls at the farmer’s market, you will find the perfect grocery bag pattern for any experience.

More and more cities around the US (and abroad) are beginning to outlaw plastic grocery bags. They cost money and they are horrible for the environment. If you want to be prepared for when this happens in your town, now would be a great time to rev up your sewing machine and become a tote-making machine. Grocery bag pattern projects are insanely easy. Many of them will only take you an hour to complete. Plus, many of the reusable grocery bag patterns below are made from scraps and tees, making a tote from a grocery bag pattern an amazing way to use up old scraps.

For an extra kick of fun check out the video tutorial below to see how you can make your own wine bottle bag out of an old pair of jeans! So fun and easy!

Great article! I have actually made my own grocery bag, around here it is not easy to get one on these, especially when I go to the market I was always offered a polyethylene bag till when I had to make my own grocery bag. I do hope this catches on with everyone because that protects the environment and it is very convenient. Thank You!!!
