As we have chickens, wild birds and a cat, we purchase animal feed in bulk. The sack the feed comes in is a sort of woven plastic fabric. Very sturdy.
What could I use them for? It seems a shame to just throw them away.
So, I decided to try for a grocery bag. Using a technique similar to the tutorial HERE, we now have this cheerful item. We even have a buff orpington hen so I can say it is a picture of one of my animals. 🙂
I am stopping at one for now, because I want to try it out and see if any changes are needed. Then I will probably make more. I have the feed sacks, and it didn’t take long.
Two more days before Christmas holiday ends. While I love my job, it has been a pleasure to have time with family (and fabric). Creating memories (and useful objects) is what holidays are all about around here.
Happy New Year!
