The green bag revolution has been with us for a while now. The bags are roomy and strong, but they’re also… bright green. Shauna calls them ‘smug bags’ and she’s right. Why else would you carry something so ugly?
I bought a great book called ECO BAG, which has all sorts of stylish shopping bags to make yourself. It’s Japanese, but the diagrams are clear, and every step is nicely set out.
Here’s a smug bag I made for a friend.
It’s the same size and shape as a plastic bag, so it holds a lot of shopping.
But much prettier, don’t you think?
