Yesterday, I dumped this 50 lb. bag of birdseed
into the bin that we store it in on the front porch.
Every time I empty one of these bags,
I feel like there is something I should be doing with
the bag rather than adding it to the trash.
It is some sort of woven plastic fabric;
and I don't think it's recyclable.
So I saved it, cleaned it out and brought it into my sewing room.
One cut, and a few seams later and here is the repurposed bag....
Ready to use for groceries or storage....a tough tote bag.
You can make two totes from one 50 lb bag.
Simply cut the bag in half across the middle.
Open the bottom and top seams.
Sew a seam across the bottom
and square your corners.
Fold down the top and hem.
And that's it.
