I have seen a few feed bag totes floating around the interwebs recently and when it came time to find a project for one of our Farmgirl Chapter meetings, I thought this would be lots of fun for everyone. All you need is a feed bag and some creativity. I am not sure what the bag material is called but it is like a plastic-y/nylon woven bag that makes a lot of crinkling noise when you touch it. How's that? Anywho, I like the simplicity of the bag I found, it was just five dollars and I could actually use the feed.
Here is my completed bag. By the way, this is the first photo I took after the whole water-logged camera debacle. Each photo has gotten better so I think my dear is going to be fine. Whew.
I bought the navy gingham fabric and made the ruffle bit and the white ruffle on top is some trim I picked up at the store. I was going to buy some nylon mesh for the handles, but I decided to go with this navy linen-like fabric I had from one of my scrap boxes and just make my own handles.
I had some of the navy gingham left over so I made a flower out of it and covered a button for the center using some more fabric out of the same scrap box. I really should share a photo of that box sometime. It is a box from my grandma so it has scraps from clothes she made when I a child. Very fun. Anyway, here is the "flower."
Here is a shot of some of us farmgirls showing off our bags!
