I purchased a couple reusable bags a few years ago when we stayed in Seattle for my husbands first stem cell transplant. I used them many times, but usually only at the Safeway store.
We're back in Seattle and I'm using them again, but I have to take them everywhere I go unless I want to purchase shopping bags from every store I go in to. It's the law! It's so funny when the cashier asks if you want to purchase a bag, when you've just purchased clothing or food and need a way to get it to your car. The grocery store asks before they ring up your food, so they know how to bag it. They thank the past mayor.
I don't like advertising for other stores and I have a hard time using a bag that says Safeway in Target or Bed Bath and Beyond, or any other store. I decided to do something to fix that. I didn't have a sewing machine, but I did bring a little sewing kit, so I sewed it by hand. Not perfect in size of stitch, but perfect in covering up.
Below the checkered fabric is a red printed SAFEWAY logo. No one can see that now.
I like the look!
Now I have one reusable Walmart bag that I'll have to fix too, but all I have is the black and white check fabric and I think I want something different on this one.
Fabric has been added to my shopping list, and covering this bag remains on my To Do list.
