I finished my 2nd Feed Tote bag. I liked the lil chics on it. lol I have realized that if I use a thicker thread The stitching doesnt bundle up as bad. Im getting the hang of it. I use it all the time and I can carry ALOT in it. very durable!

Excellent idea! I went through hundreds of feed bags last winter, made from that same material. I wondered what in the world I could do with them.....ugh...I feel horrible for tossing them. Our bags had a lovely picture of horses running though a field (they were bags of alfalfa cubes).

Just go down to a local feed store and ask if they give them away or sell them. Our local feed store sells them for 10 cents. Also alot of Cat and Dog food brands are starting to make PLASTIC bags instead of that paper one. Smiley

Hi, I'm new to the forums and relatively new to crafting on a smaller scale.  My mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, etc were all quilters.  I've made several baby quilts and similar projects.

I have a ton of feed bags from my chickens that I've saved in hopes of finding a pattern for totes.  Your's is identical to what I've had in mind.  I've never worked with this material and would love a bit of insight from you, if you wouldn't mind helping me out.

Thanks!

I used a simple bag pattern and used thicker thread then the norm. and zig zagged it. other then that there was really nothing special i did. its a lil tough to work with but just take your time and it will come out good Smiley
