Some years ago, Chicago implemented a plastic bag ban, where larger stores just don’t offer bags or else they’ll charge a small fee for them. I live in a town that’s right next door to Chicago and starting new this year, they’ve joined in the bag ban. So, in preparation – a few months ago, I made some cute reuseable bags for my own shopping, to try to get in the habit. They are working so well that I decided to offer some in my Etsy shop as well.
True to the mission of my DazzlingDoOvers shop, I wanted to make these reusable bags from some re-purposed materials. So, I gathered up some pillowcases and gave them new life as shopping bags!
Made in a smoke free, pet fee environment. I reinforced all seams to ensure it’ll have a life of many shopping trips.
This one seemed a little plain with just the navy blue, so I added my favorite party animal trio as an embellishment. Now it’s super fun!
I was excited to find a set of these fabulous Little Pony pillowcases on one of my many excursions through the little shops here in the Chicago area. I knew they were destined for greater things than gathering dust in a shop. So I set to work and now there are two available!
