How Hard Can it Be?

My new favorite tote for trips to the grocery store.  The smell of coffee all the time!  I keep it in the car and now my car smells like coffee.  I hear coffee is a natural deoderizer, so that's cool too!  I have two pre-teen boys, my car smells. LOL

Some bags from my own coffee habit and some from friends who couldn't figure out what I was planning on doing with used coffee bags.  Add a little duct tape and Voila!


That Starbucks bag is ginormous.  It came from Costco. 


Good ole Dunkin Donuts coffee.  mmmmmm.

I make reusable shopping bags out of old jeans, but coffee bags?!? It must smell delightful, and now you've got me thinking...

Thanks for the inspiration!

YES!!  I've been planning to use a dozen Cafe Bustelo bags this way, but I was going to sew them.  Duct tape seems way more logical.  Thanks.  Very good job.

I love it! I too have been saving coffee bags for the same purpose but was thinking of sewing them.  I used to work at a restaurant so I have several of the giant 10lb bags of coffee so I wont need as many to make a tote bag.  I love the use of duct tape too!

Now that's an awesome bag!  I have a heavy coffee habit and one of these would be so appropriate!

Did you line it, or is it just the cleaned bags?
