Oakhiti 1211216 Upcycle Pillowcase Shopping Bag
What can you make with just a thrift store pillowcase, a scrap of interfacing, and some thread? A designer shopping bag, of course!
Use this pattern to help you upcyle a thrift store pillowcase into a reusable shopping bag. The bags are about the same size as the ugly plastic disposable bags, but they're much more fun, prettier, and very sturdy.
View A utilizes a pillowcase with a pretty border print or interesting hem detail.
View B uses two coordinating color pillowcases to make a Yin/Yang matched pair of shopping bags.
You can have fun and be kind to the environment and your wallet at the same time. (Many thrift stores sell pillowcases for under a dollar). Make a bunch for yourself and your friends! These are quick to make, and they are great gifts too. Your groceries with thank you.
This is a sewing pattern for confident beginner to intermediate seamstresses.
