Free Produce Bag Pattern
My friend Danielle asked me about making produce bags. So I went to work and came up with this design - made from a mesh laundry bag. It's based on a plastic produce bag.
I was able to make four produce bags from one laundry bag.
I made my own double fold bias/binding tape, but you can use a package like this one.
OK, I didn't quite make my own. I used my Simplicity Bias Tape Maker; it makes single fold bias tape...then I switched tips and ran it through the machine again to make it double fold!
The only problem I've had is that the cashier had to remove my produce to weight it (I shop at Wegmans). So now I weigh it myself, in the produce department, print the sticker, and stick it to the bag. I guess the sticker isn't so eco-friendly, but I'm fine with that. It's better than a trash can full of plastic produce bags!
You'll have to head over to my Craftsy Pattern Store to download the free pattern!
