Produce bags handmade from old curtains


I recently made some fruit and vege bags from second-hand net curtains. I made simple draw string bags and used ribbon for the drawstring. Using the curtain top and bottom hems as ready-made casing for the drawstring makes the bags super-easy.


I also made a few small hand-bag sized pouches that fit five produce bags so that I can keep a set in my handbag (otherwise I know I’ll find myself leaving them at home when needed).


Want your own produce bags, but not interested in sewing your own? No problem. Just keep an eye out for Kelly’s soon to be released Ethicurean Recycled organic cotton and locally made fruit and veg bags.
