Mini grocery bags

I'm a sucker for a pre cut. No idea why. Maybe it's not wanting to stand in a cutting cue. So I have heaps of fat quarters sitting in my stash with no real intended purpose. I'm trying to do a bit of stash busting. So it got me thinking. What could I make with an entire fat quarter. They are mainly little girl prints. I have 2 boys!! I'm going to be making grocery bags for my next market so I thought I'd see if I could make one of the smallest size. Not quite. But I could make a mini bag instead, for the mini shopper. So I downsized the pattern (I'll give measurements when they are finished). Looks like I'll get the outside bag and handles plus I could make a little zip purse too. Done! So I spent a lovely Sunday with the rotery cutter, cut up 10 fat quarters and nearly used all my calico which I'll use for lining. Not a bad way to spend a quiet Sunday.

If you want to make a grocery bag too click on the Michelle Patterns button in my side bar. If you do I'd love to see them.

How do you use up your stash?

All cut up
