Change it up - Fat Quarter Grocery Bags
Anyway, since the pattern I wrote does not have these little decorative things as part of the grocery bag I thought I would share what I did Tuesday.
I used some of the leftover fabric to make stripes on the handles. One has a large stripe and the other has a smaller stripe. You just need two pieces that are 18" x 1 1/2" or 2" (or 1 1/4" for the narrow stripe). Then fold the raw edges toward the center and iron. Flip it over and pin it wrong side down to your strap and top stitch down both sides.
The Fat Quarter Grocery Bags (on Etsy or Craftsy)would work well as library bags too, especially if you have a pocket or two on there for the list of books you want to check out and your library card.
