I usually bring a bag to the grocery store now. I just fold it up and keep it in my bag. This will be easy to make and wash. You can even buy tee shirts at the dollar store or at the thrift store and use them. Thanks for the pattern.

As an experiment, I made one of these bags and hung it on our RV shower rod (I added snaps to attach it to the rod) and used it as a laundry bag. Perfect!!! The stretch in the fabric allowed me to add much more laundry than the grocery bags I'd been using for the same purpose.

Hang these in your RV on the shower rod...they make great travel laundry bags!!!

I've been doing this for awhile. I've found that spandex makes the bag stretch too much. Valuable information if you plan to make some bags. I haven't seen the need to keep the arm hole stitching though.
