Reusable Shopping Tote
This is how I make reusable shopping totes from upcycled materials. You can use either plarn (plastic yarn made from shopping bags), tarn (yarn made with stips of t-shirt material [jersey knit]) or rags (fabric cut into strips) in your cloth to make this tote. When woven properly they are very durable, even without a lining. We've had ours for quite a few years.
I made my totes out of cloth measuring about 18" x 36". You can make yours any size you want.
