I use a reusable shopping bag, so it always bothers me when I have to use MORE plastic bags just to hold produce until I’m home 30 min later and throw the bag away.
Now that I have a sewing machine, I made some reusable ones with just mosquito netting and cotton rope!
It took like, 10-15 min per bag, tops. All I did was hem the short edges, sew up the sides, and then fold the short edges down an inch to make room for the drawstring.
Then I fed the rope through the casing with a safety pin, and tied the ends together.
The only issue with this project is that the mosquito netting is REALLY hard to see. I can’t sew a straight line, but the bags came together fine anyway.
Bags of various sizes, for variously sized produce.
Ta-da! No more plastic!
