Make Yourself the Ultimate Reusable Bag

Reusable Jean Tote Side

It is imperative that we stop using single use plastic bags. I am selling reusable bags made from denim jeans on Etsy. They are $25.00 each but if you give me the jeans to use, it’s only $15.00. It’s a great deal. These bags are fabulous and will serve you well for years.

If you are a sewer, here are the directions to make one for yourself:
