I am giving homemade goodies to family and friends this Christmas. Last year I wrapped 3 sides of a box with Christmas wrapping paper and put the goodies in these. This year I wanted to do something different. In my search for crafts from feed sacks I came upon the neatest thing. A tote bag made from feed bags (not the paper ones) but those that look like a tightly woven plastic. I am making these now to hold the Christmas goodies. I made this one last night in about 30 minutes.
I am thinking of all kind of uses for them. I plan on making a couple for me to keep in my truck for my Sam's Club visits to hold the small items I purchase. They could be used as book bags or even to throw a few small tools in when you have a project to do and don't want to carry a large tool box around.
Here are the instructions for the Feed Bag Tote Bag. I like hers much better than mine due to the coloring of her bags but I have a Bazillion of the FRM bags so this is what I will use.
I found more ideas on this web site, Tink's Crafts she makes them and sells them but they are much fancier than the ones I am doing but you could get some good ideas from her photo's.
