21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / reusable produce bag on: July 01, 2013 12:42:55 PM
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.

I think it looks really good!  Remember to use a lot of stuffing. Try stuffing it a bit more and see if you like the shape better. I usually stuff my heads until they're  pretty stiff. I think it looks great.. Smiley  Keep going with it!

I swear that the poppets have evolved to an art form over these last few years...the lastest grouping on Craftster has been just wonderful!

Thanks to all of you for adding your own spin to the poppet...the workmanship and details are just something you should be proud of!

They have, haven't they? I'm amazed at the creativity, workmanship and details as well. It's so fun to see what people come up with. Thank you for the encouragement!!!
