Wow, I can use empty feed bags

This is a challenge....I have seen lots of instructions for feed bag totes online. What a good idea! Today I just couldn't face canning or making stock so I goofed off and got out my sewing machine.
Here is my first attempt at a tote. It is 17 inches high and about 14 inches wide, not fancy colors like Purina chow come in but a fun farm theme, it even has a turkey on it!

 I had a blast but now I need to see what other ideas are out there. Have you made a tote today?

Have fun and happy sewing!


  1. I love that bag artwork! If you start selling these, please let me know.

  2. I love making totes from feed bags - it's the ultimate upcycling! I have a bunch of them and use them ALOT.

  3. I am making more and the first attempt is already well used, it gets frozen groceries from the deep freeze in the Utility building to the fridge in the house!
    There are a few going places too!

  4. Cute! I've made some in the past, really should make some more.

    1. I have no idea why I didn't try this sooner, they fold up small, are light, hold a good bit and are cheap.....and we have the feed bags!
