A while back I saw some totes made from animal feed bags on-line. I thought it was a neat idea and a great way to recycle and reuse. I wanted to give it a try. Sewing a regular tote bag is fairly easy. I’ve made many of them; all different types, made from many different fabrics. So, I thought, how hard could it be for me to make one of these too. I was about to find out. Without boring you by going into the nitty-gritty details, I’ll just say ugh! Turning the bag inside out wasn’t easy. The material is stiff and unforgiving. Then sewing through the layers of plastic wasn’t fun either. But, I did it and I really liked the results. So much s0 that I made many more.
These bags are perfect for dirty rags, dish cloths, dish towels, etc.. The bags are a convenient way to carry items to the laundromat. They also work great to put freezer/cold food items in when shopping. Another way we have used them is to carry the sand toys in to take to the beach. They have multiple uses for a free bag that is a pain to make.
In Winnie I use one to hold clean rags and I have another for the dried dirty rags to keep separated for the laundry. I’m sure you could think of a few ways to use one too. This was just one more project I made for Winnie I thought you might like see.
Until next time,
