Pride and Prejudice Grocery Bag

A reusable grocery bag made with Pride & Prejudice fabric - what could be better for a Jane Austen fan.


Last month I showed you some recent fabric acquisitions, including 2 yards of Pride & Prejudice fabric, designed by Rochelle, from eSheep Designs.


Initially I thought I'd make one grocery bag as a gift, and keep the rest for other projects. I ended up cutting out four bags. One has been gifted, another I've kept, and the other two are waiting to be sewn up. 

That still leaves me enough to make a couple of zippered pouches, or maybe I'll go for a patchwork design. In the meantime, I've added the left overs to my text fabric collection. I'm in no rush to use it all up!


If you'd like to make your own reusable grocery bags, check out my full review of the Michelle's Patterns PDF Grocery Bag Pattern. I've made several bags using the pattern now.

You know I have a thing for text fabric. I'm not sure why, but it really does appeal to me. Do you see text fabric and just have to have it?

  1. I wouldn't be in a hurry to use up the scraps ... until I'd purchased more fabric in the same line or print - THEN I could use up the original scraps, haha. That's what happens with favourites!

  3. There must be a nexus thing going on between us, Pam, because my post this weekend involves new fabric with text on it and I literally have the line "...I have a thing for fabric featuring text and words..." in the post! Luckily I don't have the same opportunities as you to be tempted to buy!

    The shopping bags are a great idea and I love the black and white trim fabric you've chosen to coordinate with the P&P.

  4. I absolutely love this bag, the text fabric is fabulous and the strong black print on the top half really sets it off. Another stunning make Pam!

  5. You've done well, putting those 2 yards to good use! I think I would have had to have that fabric for several months before I could cut into it and make something. I can rarely chop into it straight away if it's lovely.
    I love the idea of Jane Austen fabric, I wonder if you can get it over here.....
