Shopping bag pattern

I found this pattern and I was excited to try it out.

The picture below is of a bag I made from grocery store bags that had green writing on them for St. Patrick's Day. Normally that store has red writing. I almost didn't have enough bags to make this and I had to ask everyone I know if they could check if they had some of these green ones. I sewed it together with green yarn.

This one I gave to my sister, Laura, for her birthday.

I made this bag wider. I think the colors are very sunny. The stripes are made of newspaper delivery bags. I got the orange and yellow yarn from my mother. They are scraps from her knitting projects.
