Reusable Shopping Bags

Starting next year Bellingham will no longer provide free bags for groceries. This, along with the fact that we acquire massive amounts of plastic bags from shopping trips, mixed with boredom, I decided to paint my very own reusable shopping bags.
After seeing a tutorial on Craftster, I decided to duplicate a similar product. I bought a bulk order of some shopping bags. I attempted to iron the wrinkles out of them, which is when I found out they were made of recycled plastic and NOT cotton. Anywho, I found some stencils online, and these are the three I've made so far. On the top left we have the TARDIS, top right is Tobias Funke, and on the bottom, Cookie Monster.

Idea for these came from here thanks to Craftster user jennieingram


  1. I will order several tardis bags and 1 cookie for reals...can you deliver? in this space time contiuum? how much? (Mrs. I)

  2. Seriously? I'm not the most savvy person when it comes to shipping and all that.
