Transform boring sheets of paper into simple and fun craft projects.
You Will Need
- Empty 50-pound dog food bag
- Soapy water
- Sewing machine
- Strong sewing thread
Thoroughly clean the inside of the dog food bag with soapy water.
Determine how big you want your tote, and cut the bag across the top. Fold a ¼-inch hem in the bag and sew it using a zigzag stitch.
Use the leftover pieces to make two strips, 3 inches wide, for the straps.
Fold the first strip lengthwise, and then fold it again. Sew the strip along its entire length using a zigzag stitch, and repeat for the second handle.
Center the handles, and then sew them in place, again using a zigzag stitch, to create a strong, unbreakable bond.
