Le sac de deux Taie d'oreiller - un Tutoriel
Got a linen closet full of pillowcases? If you can spare two pillowcases, here is a tutorial for a free reusable shopping bag: One pillowcase will form the outside, and the other will be the lining. Lay both pillowcases flat and cut out the pattern below. You will have two outside pieces (blue) and two lining pieces (taupe). If you want a pocket, sew one to the good side of a lining piece now. Lay one outer (blue) piece on top of one lining (taupe) with right sides together. Turn right side out and topstitch the same place - up one side of the curve and down the other. With right sides together, lay the front piece over the back piece. Here's how to square the corners of the bag: from the inside, take the bottom corner of bag and pinch sideways. Confused? And this is a square corner from the outside. Last thing: either tie the two handle pieces in a knot for fun, or overlap them on the ends and sew shut like I've done here. Now off to the closet for more pillowcases.
