I based this bag off of the Daisy Janie Fabric Produce Bag tutorial. However, I made the following additions/changes:
- The front fabric square is an original piece of artwork that my 7-year-old did at school. As a fundraiser we could order the art on coffee mugs, t-shirts, etc. AND they had an option for a fabric square – which I bought! He did a self-portrait and it makes me smile.
- Instead of using one solid piece, I pieced together the front of the bag using some fabric scraps I had that I love and didn’t want to waste. The back is one solid piece. The bag would obviously go much faster with one solid fat quarter like she suggests – but this one is super cute and personalized.
- Finally – I lined the bag with a vinyl tablecloth material. I also used this for the long strap.
I love the way it turned out. It’s going to my mother as a gift.
