Reusable Grocery Tote: Pattern Review

DSC02865 745x10241 545x750 Reusable Grocery Tote:  Pattern Review

I purchased this grocery tote PDF pattern/tutorial from?Keyka Lou?for $5. I’m totally in love. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this pattern to anyone who has just started learning to sew. It’s simple, the photos are excellent, and it’s the perfect way to practice basic sewing skills and still end up with a functional and pretty finished product. After having abandoned sewing for a few months, this was the ideal way to ease back in without getting overwhelmed.?For you expert seamstresses out there (NOT me!) Keyka Lou also offers plenty of options for more complex bags. I needed a hostess gift quickly and was able to turn this bag out in about half an hour. I stuffed it with ?yummy chocolate and tea and a handprinted tea towel. And, I was happy to use up some scraps from previous projects. I would like to make these in lots of colors, maybe even with vintage pillow cases. I’d love to have a few to store in my car for market trips.

  1. It is a nice and unique tote bag. But it is too small when you buy tons of items. I can not sew, but i get my tote bags sewn. I have many tote bags with various size. I use the big one if I plan to purchase lots of things.

      You’re right, Chrissy. This bag is only big enough for a few groceries. Most of my totes are large, so this one works for me if I want to throw it in my purse and use it for small clothing items or a quick market run. I haven’t thought about modifying the pattern to make it bigger…may not be a bad idea!
