I like anything free and I don’t like being wasteful so these Produces Bags were the perfect project for me. It’s also be a great project with Earth Day fast approaching. A lot of us already use reusable grocery bags so why not stop using those plastic bags for produce and start using reusable produce bags.
I saved the bags my oranges came in to make the new bags. So I’m also recycling the free bags instead of throwing them out.
I slipped one end of the bag in the center of a strip of bias tape. You’ll need the double fold tape. I already had some bias tape, but if you don’t have any you can purchase it for less than $2.
I ran a small zig zag stitch down the center of the tape to form the bottom of the bag. The top of the bag just gets tied up once it’s full.
Just in case you were wondering how sturdy they are. My little helper will demonstrate for you!
I keep them in the back of my van along with the reusable grocery bags so they don’t get left at home. What’s your favorite thing to recycle?
