Sure it is quick and easy to buy a trendy shopping bag with a brand name, but why not knit your own with cotton-viscose yarn and carry an original bag that is roomy and sturdy. Designed to last with straps that run on both sides and double up at the top (to reinforce), this bag is the ultimate shopping bag that fits neatly into a purse so that you’ll always have one at your fingertips when needed. The straps are sewn to the sides of the bag to make small pockets for keys, grocery list or cell phone. The bag also features a solid base for items to sit on.
