Grocery Bag Tutorial

We made another video tutorial! This one is for making simple grocery bags. I hope you like it! I have a bit of a cold so it slowed me down a little. I have been meaning to make myself some bags for the grocery store for ages now as the old ones I have are slowly tattering away. 


1/2 yard of Home Dec or Canvas fabric
2 yards of heavy cotton twill tape for the straps
regular sewing supplies (sewing machine, thread, ruler. rotary cutter, scissors and pins)

So let me know what you think and let me know what you would like to see in the future.

I buy my heavyweight cotton twill tape from This is an actual link to the roll of twill tape that I use. It is 1.25 inches and comes on a 72 yard roll. I use it for straps, apron ties and sometimes I even use it as binding around the top of quilted bags. It is great stuff folks.




  1. Thanks for the tutorial Tia! I'm ready to start some bags, but first need to source the twill tape. Could you post a link to source? Thanks. (Loved the lone star piecing tutorial also)
