I've got Retro Revamp and want to make a bag out of it.  The pattern says to start with a potato or onion bag and then sew table cloth vinyl onto it.  I can't picture what kind of potato or onion bag this might be, any clues?  There are some that are plasticy mesh and some are paper with a mesh window.  Are there other kinds in the US?  Or I am incapable of imagining?

Big bags of taters sometimes come in burlap sacks...or maybe they don't do that anymore Hrmmm : /

I've seen the plastic-y mesh ones you mentioned. Maybe they are talking about burlap, though I haven't seen onions in burlap ever (which is not to imply they aren't sold in burlap). When I think of old food bags, I think of the flour sacks. Maybe that's what they mean. Guess I'm not much help. Heh.

I don't need a baby growing inside me for nine months. For one thing, there's morning sickness. If I'm going to feel nauseous and achy when I wake up, I want to achieve that state the old fashioned way: getting good and drunk the night before.

A neat alternative might be to get a big bag of rice- they come in either fabric or sort of woven nylon bags that might work. This would be good if you use a lot of rice.

I ended up getting a rectangular orange mesh onion bag, it worked out ok. Burlap or those woven plastic rice bags have lots of crafty possibilities too!

you can find burlap feed bags at feed stores, like where they sell horse food and stuff. they're cheap too!

oh i did this exact bag last summer!!! It is sooo hard to find a bag for it... my gramma went to cub and all she could find was the orange stretchy little onion bags.. so she went to rainbow foods the next day and she asked this little old man who worked there about one and she brought the book to show the picture and he said that they get the potatoes in them but then they move them all out of the bag. and into the shelves...or something like that... but anywayz he said he would keep one for me becuz normally they just throw them away and so my gramma went back the next day whiel he was working and came home with a beaute! It was red mesh and was  a 50 lb potato sack!!! ITS huge but not too big too look out of the ordinary! this was in MN so i dont know about all the other weird little states out there if there are rainbow foods stores but just ask your big grocery store chain! sorry that i ramble in this post...
