Turn your feed bags into reusable grocery, tote, or gift bags! This project is super simple for a beginner sewer. Prior to making these tote bags, I hadn't sewed since home economics class in middle school! Special thanks to Alex's mom for helping me with this project!! You can use any type of plastic feed bag: chicken, goat, bird, etc.
In this video, I demonstrate how to make a feed bag out of a 50lb chicken feed bag. If you are using a smaller bag, I recommend using the following measurements:
Straps- Make sure to cut the straps so that they are at least 12 inches long. You can make them longer if you prefer to put the strap over your shoulder.
Strap Placement- Rather than measuring 6 inches in from the side, try measuring 4-5 inches instead.
Squaring off the bottom- Measure across the triangle 4 inches instead of 5in.
About Us: We are Alex and Elaina, a couple in our 20s who are currently living on the 3-acre farm in southern Pennsylvania where Alex grew up. We have a garden, backyard chickens, and build or fix anything that we need to. We still work corporate day jobs, but are working to eventually leave the 9-5 lifestyle in favor of a self-built, debt-free, homestead on 6 acres nearby.
Something that differentiates us from other YouTube homestead channels is our transparency on the cost of our projects - there is usually a breakdown right in the description!
