The Retail Therapy Reusable Shopping Bag is a fold & roll style bag that fits in your purse or pocket. It is not fully lined by design so that it rolls up to half the size of a fully lined bag, but it does have a facing to give the handles a finished look. If you don’t have an overlocker, options are given for finishing the side seams on your sewing machine. The bottom seam is triple stitched for strength.

Exterior Fabric: 1 yard for non-directional prints, 1 1/2 yards for directional prints
Lining Fabric (for facing): 1/2 yard
3/4” wide hook and loop tape: 2” OR Elastic: 8”-10” OR Snaps: One set
80/12 or 90/14 sharp/microtex or topstitch needles recommended
