I had seen a woman at the grocery store with this grocery tote, looked it up online and finally made one today. I think it will be pretty sturdy for groceries.

I love it when things get re-purposed instead of being thrown away. You did a great job! What is the sack made of - plastic or some kind of fabric?

It is a heavy duty plastic. Seems to have a sort of a weave of fibers throughout it. I have three more empty sacks as well as two full of seeds. Now that I have the process figured out the rest should go pretty quickly!

Those would make excellent gifts...or even gift bags that become a gift in themselves.

Your tote bag is wonderful.
What a brilliant idea.
I am going to be on the look out for sturdy bags.
Thanks for sharing.

Such a clever idea! Did you line it with anything? Was it difficult to do?

It is not lined. The handles do have some quilting batting as suggested in the Instructables directions. I guess it gives it more longevity. I plan to use them for grocery totes so I didn’t think I would need to line them. This first one took longer to make because some of the directions weren’t as clear as I needed. I am an extremely visual learner . So I found on YouTube a video of a woman making them from horse feed bags that cleared up some of my confusions. Plus some of my own improvising. Last night I prepped two bags in about 15 minutes and it will probably take me about an hour or hour and a half to do the sewing part— hopefully this afternoon.

My current cloth bags are starting to fall apart and I know they can be purchased rather inexpensively, but I love having a “ project” . Insert an eye roll from my DH.

Definitely understand what you mean about always having a project going on!

I made a list the other day of small projects I could do when I felt at odd ends and didn't really want to make a whole piece of clothing or start a cross stitch piece. I know I could read, and I do, but I still need more.
