Are you planning a car trip this summer? Do you need extra bags in the car for wet beach clothes or after-picnic recyclables? Erin from Dog Under My Desk joins us today with a fun + free PDF tutorial for you to download. Print out instructions for a Grocery Bag Stuff Sack, get to work and pretty soon you’ll always have handy, extra bags in the car! Learn more about Erin in her introduction, and take a look at Erin’s shop for more of Erin’s designs and patterns.

Erin writes, “I’ve been on a bit of an appliqué kick lately, so I thought this little grocery bag stuff sack would be really cute for keeping extra grocery bags handy to recycle as trash bags for the car! If you skip the appliqué, this bag would be great to hold small toys for the kids on road trips or even a ball of yarn!”

The finished size is about 5″ wide by 6″ tall by 4″ deep. Download the Trash Can Appliqué design, and then print out your Grocery Bag Stuff Sack PDF Tutorial. Have fun sewing!
