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!


Hello! Hooray! Foldaway bag tutorial
