This looked better in my head, but here goes. I noticed dog food bags look like the material they use for reusable bags you buy from Target or whatever. I used a men's dress shirt from goodwill for the interior, and I had PERFECT fold over elastic with dog paws on it to bind the ugly serged edges. I may add handles later, but it's useable, so I'm considering it done! The only bad thing is even though I thought I washed it really well, it still has a bit of a stink. I will only use it for Petco trips I guess Smiley My dogs won't mind one bit.

ETA: This type of plastic does NOT melt together when ironed! DO NOT ATTEMPT! lol. I ended up hot gluing the "applique."

I want to make an insulated lunch tote out of my dog/cat food bags. I would imagine, if I double layered the bags, I could put old fleece in the middle of the layers to insulate. Probably be much sturdier than the lunch bags that are overpriced. Besides, my boyfriend is really hard on those bags.
