Having been a fan of refusing plastic bags and using my own cotton alternative for a long time I am really pleased that this practice is now becoming the norm. There are many calico shopping bags currently available from supermarkets, city councils and as fashion items from high street stores.
The appliqué vegetable motifs above are to be used on my own limited edition collection of calico shopping bags. I think I shall add some embroidered text and perhaps a splash of colour with bound seams. I shall post the finished items for you soon.
