Yesterday I posted that I made a loverly grocery bag. It IS pretty and if I could get more of that stripe, I sooooo will, but I digress....
As promised, I took my new bag to the store and compared to my old, crusty canvas bags.
1 - Looks, the new bag sooooooo wins
2 - Size.....that's a tie
3 - Sturdiness.....that's a tie
4 - The right squareness for groceries.....tie
5 - Where the old and crusty wins....handle placement
Bear in mind, this is a highly subjective issue.....I have one peep that LOVES her keykalou grocery bags and 4/5 is a really good score....really good. I just like the way the bag is carried with the handles attached in a different way.
Size wise, pretty similar...right now they have differing amount of stuff in them, but they pretty much hold the same volume of stuff.
See how the sunflower bag has the handles attached front and back?
The new bag has the handles attached front to back.
Maybe if they were a tad longer............I just don't know.
The bag is a keeper and I will make it again with the handles attached front and back and just a smidge longer. I will use canvas next time for some stiffness.
Overall score: 4/5 stars.....5/5 for easy to sew.
Do you have a favorite grocery bag pattern? Do you love this keykalou pattern?
What say you?
