DIY produce bags – hemp and organic cotton fabric, unbleached
* Unbleached hemp and organic cotton fabric, 147cm wide, price per 25cm length
This fabric is perfect for making your own shopping bags for fresh produce – to replace the plastic bags provided in the fruit and vegetable section of the supermarket. This is an unbleached hemp and organic cotton in a lightweight weave – strong enough to hold a pile of carrots, but also light enough that it doesn’t add to the weight of your shopping.
If you can sew in a straight line, you can easily make your own produce bags from this lovely fabric. I have very little sewing experience, and easily whipped up three produce bags one evening, using an old 1970s sewing machine I borrowed from my Mum.This fabric is 147cm wide. A 25cm piece will make two large produce bags, or three or four smaller ones.
