Kristen decided she wanted new shopping bags, so I went thru that big pile of scraps on my cutting table and came up with these. The first one was 2.5" patchwork of pinks, browns, creams, but I lost the picture to that one and she has it in IN. It had iron-on interfacing between the front and liner, which stiffened it up a little and pockets on the front and inside.

These two I decided to try SITD and outline quilting with pieces of leftover battings on the fronts, then added a liner as well.The red/brown one has a pocket on the inside, and 80/20 batting. Not real stiff, but sturdy enough for groceries. The other with the green patches has no pockets, mid-loft poly batting and stands up on its own. Both were basically cut 16x19, then I experimented with the width of the bottoms.

I went by a video that I saved from Harwood site, many good ideas and tutorials on quilting, cooking, etc. The tote bag tutorial has 2 videos. She also has some really nice table runners listed also:
