a bag a day: the curtain market bag

A shopper bag. Light enough to crumple and fold into a smaller bag. Large enough for groceries.  I do not think you have to sacrifice style for practicality when it comes to super market bags (ladies!). And this bag has the following features to prove it.

Reinforcing with bias binding means I don't have to second guess how much I try to stuff into the bag. It will hold. And cotton (and jute) webbing are my favourites for handles that are both comfortable and will last.
Seams reinforced with bias binding.
Handles lined with cotton webbing and stitched for durability.
On re-use. This fabric lay dormant for two-and-a-half years. It was cut off a 'ready-to-hang' store bought curtain (that was too long for its hanging space). The chocolate pattern is flocked (in a raised velvet) and is luscious to the touch.
