Weekend Project: bulk bags
I’ve had this project on my to do list for quite some time. It’s an easy one and I waited until my sewing machine was getting serviced to tackle it, since I knew I could whip them up super fast with my serger. (They wouldn’t take much longer with my regular machine.) It was also a good reintroduction project for me and my serger. I haven’t used it in quite a while and am itching to, so I jumped back in last night. Oh, and what are they? They’re bulk grain bags for grocery shopping. Simple as that.
So, all I did was take some muslin, cut it into rectangles I thought seemed like a good size and serged up the sides. I used whatever thread I grabbed first and that I didn’t mind using up for this project. I had been wanting to use the rubber stamps and fabric ink I used here, so my four year old helped me spell out some words.
I had intended to include a piece of twill tape in the side seams to be able to tie them up once filled, but forgot. I’ll attach that later, simple enough. If I make more, I won’t forget! A quick ironing to set the ink and we’re good to go! I’m thrilled with my under-an-hour project. What are you making this weekend?
