Pillowcase Tote

I was killing some time today, and ended up browsing through the ARC. If you don't have one in your area, it's a used item shop. I found some pillowcases, and remembered I was supposed to make my SIL some bags for shopping--a long time ago. I found some that were heavy enough and I liked, so I bought 7--does this count as fabric I added to my stash??

When I got home, I googled and found this tutorial. It was fun and easy to follow and I ended up with a bag.

One down, 6 to go. They will be very sturdy, too, because they are made with two thicknesses of the pillowcase. The handles match because you use part of the case for the handles--what could be better?! And because there was a bit of scalloped edging on the top of the case, there is some here for extra decoration.
Here is another one I just finished--what fun!

Thank you Regina

I love the striped bag. I bet your favorite sister would too! Just kidding...she knows how to sew also; she's just not as focused.
