*Another* great use for the rainflys that get thrown out when a tent is ruined. Wonderful use of the fabric!!

The loop and elastic are great ideas. Lightweight poly makes a pretty small bag, too--though not as compact as ripstop--which rules in the real world of BYOB.

I've added a link to a pic of my bag patterns. I just cut apart a grocery sack and straightened the edges, then added a seam allowance.

I never thought of using Ripstop. I think I have some around here. Great idea.

I have a pile of rip-stop that I need to use up. Thank you for the idea/plans. You did a great and green job

I've been wanting to make my own and this is defintely the ones I want to make. I love the elastic tab! Thanks for sharing all your hints!

Can you add a photo of your pattern? I love the new smaller ones for grocery shopping. I have a dozen canvas bags that I use and they are very, very bulky. I've been using them for about 6 years now from back when taking your own bags wasn't a fashion statement. It may be time to upgrade.

Awesome! I wanted to make the canvas shopping bags for which there is a very nice tutorial on for Christmas gifts this year, but I think I'll make mostly these from ripstop with one or two of the canvas ones for heavy/glass bottle items thrown in, too! Going green is funnnnn! Thanks for this.

Wow! Who knew "green" could get greener? I have enough stash to create grocery bags for my entire town....Now THERE'S an idea!!!

They look great! I really want to make some of the rolling rip stop bags like yours. Thanks for the review!

Jen, I love your bags. I really liked my PR bag too and yours look just like them.

I've been testing different fabrics and agree with adding the extra loop-- if you try them in the U-scan lane, you'll see this is an important addition!
