Having described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
A combination pouch shopping bag comprising an axiallyY elongated substantially hollow main body portion formed of relatively open-work net like fabric, a substantially annular upper mouth end marginal portion surmounting said main body portion and formed of relatively closely crocheted fabric, a pair of curved normally upstanding mutually spaced handles carried by said upper marginal portion and formed of similar fabric, a substantially circular iioor member formed of relatively closely crocheted fabric and secured at its periphery to the lower extremity of said cylindrical hollow main body portion to form a fioor thereof, a second substantially circular vmember of size, shape, and fabric similar to that of said iirst circular iioor member, means continuously securing said first and second circular members together along their perimeters in face to face position along an arc of more than about 180 degrees but less than about 260 degrees, leaving said abutting perimeters of said circular members unsecured continuously together along an arc which is more than about degrees and less than about degrees, button and buttonhole means carried jointly upon said unsecured perimeters of said circular members for closing the open lower mouth thus formed, said lower mouth affording access to a lower chamber thus formed between said two circular members for the reception of articles therein, and whereby, upon opening and turning inside out, said lower chamber and inverting the same, and grasping the then upturned lower mouth sides thereof, said widely opened lower mouth is constructed and arranged as aforesaid, to receive, freely and without further expanding said lower mouth, the entire said main body portion, upper annular portion and pair of handles, whereupon said button and buttonhole means may be mutually engaged to close the said lower mouth thereupon, and whereby, upon disengaging said button and buttonhole means, and inverting said lower mouth, said contents thereof are free to fall by gravity force alone, out of said lower mouth until in extended positions relative thereto.
