Vicki's Fabulous Shopping Bags

I want to share with you a fantastic shopping bag that my friend Vicki designed and made for me! Well, she didn't design it for me, but she made me 4 of them. They are completely awesome!! First, they fold up nice and small:

It's so nice! I can fit them right in my purse, or I can carry them on my wrist. It's pretty easy to get them back that way, too, once you get the hang of it.

That little thing folds out into this!

Fabulous! it's actually bigger than a regular paper grocery bag, and it carries so much stuff! I can get a week's worth of groceries into 3 of these bags. They are strong, too. Way, way stronger than those flimsy ones that most stores are selling for $1-$1.50 these days. Very strong! I used two of them at a quilt show recently. Believe me, they were STUFFED!!! Vicki says she has carried 2 gallons of milk in hers without a problem.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that it is WAY prettier than those "environmentally friendly" ones they sell in grocery stores. Those are so ugly!! I would rather be good to the environment AND use pretty bags!
