I have been wanting to make a smaller cloth bag that folds into it's own pocket and would be small enough to carry in my purse. I made a cloth bag in the dimensions of a morsbag (18 by 20 inches), see the directions here.
I then added a 7 inch fully lined square for the pocket. Place the pocket at the center bottom of the bag.
When you want to fold it up: fold the bag in thirds lengthwise, then tuck the handles down and fold the bag into thirds again, and then turn it inside it's own little pocket.
Pop it in your purse and you are ready for avoiding plastic bags in almost any setting!

My son and his wife requested 2 more grocery bags, so they could use them for all of their groceries. Good for them. I had a little bit left of the olive and lettuce fabric, so stretched it as best I could. Now they have 4 coordinating bags, see the others here and here.
I wonder what it would take for the US to pass a ban or tax on plastic bags as has been done in Ireland?

Just to let you know that the bag that I made especially for my trip to the Bahamas did get used. The weather was not a as nice as we had hoped for, as you can see by the force of the wind blowing my hair back, but it was lovely none the less. I enjoyed the colors of the water and seeing green and blooming things in January is always a treat for a Michigan girl.
