Acrylic Templates for Grocery Bag Handles
In partnership with Stitch Buzz, templates for the handles for my Grocery Bag pattern are now available!
The Grocery Bag pattern is my best selling pattern and people all over the world have made these simple to sew, and endlessly useful bags. If you make these bags over and over (some people have made hundreds of them!), you will appreciate these clear clear templates.
These are made with 1/8th inch clear cast acrylic so that you can cut multiple layers of fabric with a rotary cutter. If you are like me and don't cut a lot with a rotary cutter, these are still a fantastic tool! They'll last far longer than the paper pattern pieces and make it super simple to trace the handle outline onto the fabric with your favorite fabric marker.
Besides making the cutting/marking easier, clear templates are great to line up the grainline, design elements and patterns on the fabric you choose. Whether you are wanting to highlight a pretty floral element, line up stripes or even an embroidery design, just use the center grainline of the template and place above the color on the bottom for perfect placement. The strip of color on the lower edge of each template represents the seam allowance where the bag meets the handle.
This listing is for a set of the acrylic templates in sizes small, medium and large for the handles. The sewing pattern is sold separately and is available here.
