More fold-away shopping bags

Here are two of my fold-away shopping bags which I made recently. They are based on my tutorial here.

These are made using some of Amy Butler’s gorgeous decorator-weight cotton sateen. Underneath the buttons are sew-on snaps.

Here is one fully opened.

And here is the other.

I have been sewing small things recently – mostly because small things are quick to sew and easy on my brain which has been pretty preoccupied with work of late. Things are getting back to normal very slowly but I now have a new team and need to devote some time to getting to know them and training them.

Wishing you a great week ahead. x


  1. These are great, thanks for the tutorial! Gonna have to try my hand at these!!!

  2. I still can't get over how you find the time to sew. I have a stack of unfinished projects sitting next to my sewing machine and a long list of projects I really want to get started on, your fantastic shopping bag is one of them :)
