I love your videos - I'm so proud of the finished products that I wish you had a pictorial library where your followers could post their creations. One of my favorites (and I use it all of the time) is the DIY Neck Wallet. I made the "handle"/strap on it longer and I use it when I only need my phone, credit card and driver's license with me. It's so cute and functional when you don't want to carry a bulky, heavy purse! Thanks.

Plastic is horrible for the environment so I hope you choose to use your own DIY bags. Been doing this for years

Wonderful tutorial. Thanks for sharing. I use cloth bags when I shop. These are a wonderfully creative way to be environmentally friendly.

Love today's pattern. Living in CA, I am getting used to the mandatory bag policy. What a nice way to haul groceries!

Thanks for the great tutorial. I think most Canadians regularly use fabric bags instead of plastic or paper, some because of bylaws but mostly voluntarily to protect the environment.

Great pattern, beautifully explained - thank you.

Bring these bags with you if you ever come to Europe as most countries have a 'no free plastic bags' law.
