My husband always makes fun of me because I write a grocery list and promptly forget it at home when I head out the door. He seems to think it’s funny. And while I guess there is some humor in the fact that I nearly always forget it, there is still benefit in that I usually can remember what was on the list by just the act of writing it out. But I also do a similar thing with reusable grocery bags. Yup, I either leave them at home, or if I’m lucky enough to get them to the car, in the car while shopping. Urgh! I much prefer to use the reusable bags. They hold more, they’re easier to carry, they’re a bit more attractive and best of all, they don’t tear leaving a trail of lemons and potatoes on the ground behind me as I carry groceries in. No, I don’t speak from experience. Okay, maybe just a *little*. okay, okay, a lot. I get so stinkin frustrated when that happens! And it seems to happen weekly.
Anyway, I heard a friend of mine really wanted some for her birthday. I was a bit intimidated because she’s a crazy good seamstress and I’m well, a lazy one! LOL. But I set to work anyway and did my best. I was so pleased with the result I almost didn’t send it! Sigh. But I was good and did. And now I’m thinking I just need to find some time to make myself a nice set of 6 or 8 because I’m thinking that if I had really pretty bags, I wouldn’t forget them at home or in the car.
I’m thinking about doing a pattern for these, but I need to perfect the pattern, so give me a bit and check back!!
