I have FINALLY finished my SewSweetness Rockstar Bag. There are several things that I will do differently next time, but it turned out well.
Anyone need more insulated grocery bags? I always need more. I’ve read many tutorials online and they’re okay, but I wanted one that I could launder easily and that would hold a little more than most of them do. So I designed my own.
I bought a roll of Reflectix insulation at a local building supply store. You get a 33.3 square foot roll, 16 inches wide, for about $16. This is seriously tough stuff. I was a little worried that it might tear easily, but I think it will hold up well.
I used quilting cotton for the bag outer and lining.
I didn’t take pictures during the process. I will when I make a tutorial. This is what the bag looks like finished. The handles are a little short. (Note: Make handles longer next time.)
It is roomy. It’s easy to make.
The insulation comes out. It is a separate unit that can be washed off and the bag can be thrown in the washer and dryer.
