South Australia has banned the plastic bag except for the thick plastic bags you can now buy for 20 cents each that look like they will never break down.
I decided to make a bag that was similar to the plastic bag but made from fabric.
How hard could it be? I used to sew my own clothes and designed cloth dolls for years. Besides a girl friend was having a birthday and this would be a great present.
So I sallied forth with pen, paper, scissors, fabric and a picture in my head.
The first bag was too small and "could do better" appeared on my report card!
Back to the drawing board more paper was stuck to the first pattern and away I went again. The second bag was too big and would need to be packed and unpacked in the car!
My girl friend received a set of "nesting bags" for her birthday.
She loves her nesting bags and tells everyone the fairy tale of the three bags!
