It's going to be a scorcher here today and for those of us who are not acclimated to this type of heat...uh,me..I'ma gonna melt.
I wanted to get a little crafting in early and I've been trying to go through my stash. My pile-o-stash. Anyhoo! been wanting to make reusable produce bags for some time now since I've been really trying to reduce my plastic use. This bag isn't a thing of beauty but it will do the trick and cut down on a ton! of plastic as I buy lots of produce. It's washable too!
I cut a 16 1/2" by 13" piece of tulle on the fold. (The 13" is on the fold) I sewed up one side twice with a smaller stitch on the sewing machine then I zig zagged it. If I knew how to work my serger I would have used that. I just wanted to make sure I sewed it several times so it's good and strong. I added the inch binding to the top after I sewed up one side and tucked in the cord I found from and old sleeping bag in there to eliminate threading it through. Then I sewed up the other side the same as the first which made it a little bag.
It's really easy and fast and eliminates lots of plastic. It was super cheap too! Any questions please let me know and I hope ya'll make some. I'll be making a several more of these to give to family and friends too!
Now...off to the couch with a Popsicle and a movie.
