Repurposed Feed Bag = Tote Bag

The livestock feed companies have begun using that plastic-y paper for the feed bags now. I have a love-hate relationship with that stuff. It is not easily recycle-able and does not break down well in landfills. BUT with just a little bit of sewing know-how, you can turn them into reusable tote or grocery bags.

I love the Purina Layena bags! Did you know that in October, their blue bag is pink instead, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month? Talk about making into a great bag with that sack!

Any feed sack will work for this, but the plastic-y paper is going to be what you are looking for to make the totes.  Imagine taking these to the grocery functioning as reusable grocery sacks! Turn some heads, eh?

When you make some of these, be sure to head over to our Facebook page and share some photos!
