Foldaway shopping bag tutorial

A little while back, I saw a tweet from the Craft Cotton Co. asking for sewing bloggers who would be interested in working with them to create some free sewing tutorials for their new blog. I obviously jumped at the chance! I had a think about potential projects and decided to make a foldaway shopping bag that I’d been planning for a little while. I often forget to take a reusable bag with me when I go shopping, and I find that they take up so much room in my bag! So I wanted to design a foldaway one which will be far more convenient. 


The Craft Cotton Co. very kindly sent me a lovely fabric bundle to be able to make this bag, and I chose these super blue vintage fabrics to make it. I like the contrast of the ditsy floral pocket with the bolder print for the bag, and there are so many possibilities to make it your own!
