REUSEABLE grocery bags!

Last week was my cousin, Lisa's, bridal shower. I had such a great time (and looked like the bride did too)! My sister and I wanted to give her a personable and special gift, while saving money at the same time. After seeing this grocery bag tutorial on Sew Mama Sew, we couldn't resist whipping up a few for the bride-to-be! And you know what?........
She loved them!!! And do you know what else?..........
They ended up matching her kitchen colors perfectly (even though I didn't intentionally do that)! Wow! And then my sister filled them up with all kinds of grocery items for their new home! And look how much they can hold!!!
Congrats on your upcoming wedding, Lisa! I'm sooo excited for you and Aaron! And...enjoy those grocery bags for many, many, many trips to the store! And, don't forget...machine wash those cold, and tumble dry on low! If you haven't jumped over to that tutorial to see how easy these are made, check it out here, now. : )
