I finally got around to making these big bags from the feed store that I received from a friend into shopping bags.



Just 3 cuts, 3 sewn seams, 4 grommets and 4' of rope and they're about the size of a paper grocery sack which I think it a great size.  I followed the design of one I was given, but made mine wider at the bottom so I could get a lot in there, but not crush the things at the bottom.



They're durable, stand up on their own, moisture resistant and I don't worry about setting them on the dirty ground, because they just wipe off.

Thanks!  I'm almost certain they got them from a feed store... full of bird and cat food.

Great recycle project!

I wish I could take credit for the original idea or knew who came up with it, but I don't.  Sad

I've made several of these over the years.. from horse feed bags, bird seed, dog food.. but used the bag material as handles.  I like your grommet and rope handles better!

great job!!

Hope

Thanks!  I completely copied this idea so can't take any credit for that, but I must say I'm liking the idea of using the bag material with grommets!  I just made a few more of these that I haven't yet done the handles on, so I may try that when I get more bags.  As it is, I don't have material left over, but I could use one bag just for handles.  Hmmmmmm.

Do it!  Give 'em a scrubbing on the inside, then you're ready to go!

You know, about 60% of the time the cashier will comment about how they like them or think they're clever which sometimes get other people in line to notice and comment, but otherwise I don't think people even notice what with all the variety of reusable bags out there.
