The Compact Carry Bag


The Compact Carry Bag is a foldable, re-usable shopping bag making it a great eco-friendly option! This bag is fully lined and has no exposed seams. It’s super sturdy, but still folds up to a neat square, held closed with an elastic loop. Best of all it only uses two half yards of fabric making it a great stash buster. Make one or three to pop into your bag today!

Thoughts from Ali


One thing that will never go away is the need for a bag tocarry your shopping.

It’s pretty standard now when you’re out shopping to bringyour own bags along – but there are times when you’re caught short and didn’t plan it.

So, you end up with a handful of items tucked under your arm while still trying to access your phone, purse and keys. When this happens, a bag that folds up small is great as you can keep it in your handbag for those‘shopping’ emergencies.

Now, you can sew a bunch of these and never be caught short without a bag again!
