Eco-friendly Grocery Bag

I have been making Market Totes for my Etsy shop for awhile now, and I just added a slight design variation.  The bags that I have been making are large tote bags suitable for grocery trips, carry all bags or the beach.   They measure about 15″x15″x6″.  So, they are larger than your standard grocery bag and are meant to be carried on your shoulder.
