I've joined a group on Flicker that is exchanging pot holders, this time they are including reusable grocery bags. I've had a lot of fun with this project and I'm looking forward to the next one. The other stipulation this time around was, the potholder cannot be square. The bag was really fun to make, quick and easy, I'll be making several more for myself. It fits right into the grocery bagging station at the store where you get the plastic bags. The pattern I used is here: Keyka Lou Grocery Bag
This is in progress and I'm not sure how I want to proceed next. Each of the center squares is different. I like the design and may take it out further for a throw. I like the secondary design that comes from the addition of the modified snowball block. I had some old paisley fabric that I have had laying around for years and so I decided to cut it up and try a new technique. By reversing some pieces of the fabric you can obtain a mirrored image which give you new possibilities.

|Natures Palette is a great place to select colors|

All the different options!
