This is a book of sewing patterns for making wine tote bags, large tote bags, and yoga mat tote bags using upcycled woven polypropylene feed sacks as the fabric. We have included feed sack preparation advice and sewing hints so that you can learn from our experiences. The table of contents for the 28 page book is shown in the above pictures.
Inspire your life with the vivid images of natural beauty found on woven polypropylene feed sacks. Upcycled feed sacks are an excellent fabric for making tote bags of all sizes and shapes. The fabric is exceptionally strong for safely carrying heavy loads and extremely easy to keep clean and sanitary with a damp cloth and household cleansers.
We have created four easy tote bag patterns to encourage everyone to recycle their feed sacks into beautiful and practical custom works of usable art. The first two patterns are for wine tote bags. The first pattern is a simple flat wine tote bag that is easy to fold up and put into your purse. The second wine tote bag pattern is a little more complex with a square box bottom. The third pattern is a large tote bag suitable for too many household purposes to enumerate; just use your imagination. The fourth pattern is a yoga mat tote bag.
All you need to get started is some basic sewing skills and a few woven polypropylene feed sacks. Use your imagination to add custom touches and trims to the patterns. And remember to have fun while keeping those feed sacks out of the landfill.
