grocery bags, take II

I had such a good time making
the previous grocery bag,
I decided to make some more,
but this time, I used my fabric from Provence.

I have been holding onto my stash of Provence fabric,
like a precious commodity,
but since I started using it for my sewing room,
the seal is broken,
and I am going to town,
using it guilt free!
It is not like there are no more
where they come from!
( my parents will go there for vacation soon!)

For this project I used this fabric:

and some osnaburg for the handle
and lining, like my previous one.

I made them for my mother in law
as a happy mother's day present,
she reads my blog,
but since she is travelling to visit us,
it is safe to post today!

It is hard to tell on the picture,
the handles are top stitched in dark green,
matching the fabric.

For fun and pleasure, I added
a little tag, as a little logo.
Since I am not selling any of my work,
but I still want fame and glory
(not really!)
I went low key:
just a stamp on a piece of osnaburg!
a cute sewing machine and a little M:

I was inspired by this post by See Kate Sew
who made her own label.

Happy sewing!


  1. I almost feel like putting my bags in the far back of the pantry now. But I won't, because I made them so I could do my part to save the more plastic bags and all that.

  2. I'll have to try this! I love your blog and want to pass along the Stylish Blogger Award to you. Go to and copy and paste the award.



Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!
