My Mom bought a roll of these old grain and seed sacks from the seed plant my Grandpa used to work at. She wasn't sure what to do with them, but kept them anyway. I went and took a bunch and decided they needed to be put to good use. My Mom asked for a new project bag for Chrismas to lug her crochet around in, I figured what better than a grain bag tote! I washed them, cut it in half, french seamed the bottom for added strength, hemmed up the top, and whipped up some handles!
They are very durable and washable so perfect for a project bag!
Here it is flat.

And here it is being displayed by my lamp.  Cheesy I think she'll be able to carry everything in this bag!

I think I may make more of these and embroider things on them for gifts and even my etsy shop. They'd make great shopping totes as well!
Thanks for looking.  Wink

Very cute! I'm sure you mom will love it!

You could even do a few with a pocket on the front to hold pattern instructions or coupons!

Don't forget to show us any more you make! Cheesy

Great idea about the pocket!!!! I may just slip a pocket onto this one! Some also have neat logos on them so I might make a couple featuring the logos.
Thanks for the idea and I will post others!
