Fold'n Roll Tote

I've figured out a different way to make my simple shopping tote design more compact. The idea is to make it easier to have several of these totes along for shopping, minus the crazy tangle of long straps and balled up totes I currently have to deal with. The aim is to simplify the chaos. ;o)
See that pocket on the front of the tote?
That pocket works similar to a napkin ring, only in this case it works like a band to constrain that tote! No stuffing that large tote into the pocket. The tote is simply folded into thirds behind the pocket and the two ends of the pocket are snapped together to make this:

it's a fold and roll procedure. I'm going to give this design idea a test run at the grocery store tonight. If it passes the "test", I'm going to be adding these special pockets to the next batch of grocery totes I make.

  1. Looks like a much better design than the one on my $10 eco tote. Cherrie

  2. That is a very good idea. My bags are all stuffed into the largest bag and hang on the back of our basement door. I fear that even if I added this handy snappy ring I would still have bags hanging on the back of m basement door...lol..I at least I am aware of my weaknesses! Right?

  5. Brilliant, Katherine. And just think of all the people you will inspire to use cloth bags when they see how pretty (and durable) yours is.
