I have been trying to go plastic free, it’s slow progress working through everything. I already use fabric bags to go shopping, be that groceries or regular pottering, my favorite bag is from Burda Style. This week I have been making some muslin bags to use in the supermarket, so instead of using the poly bags I can pop my fruit and veg in these. Have been trialing different sizes and now have a definitive that works for me.
They are large enough to take carrots, apples, pears etc and when I whizzed them up at work it was suggested a larger version for potatoes. The bags are made from muslin and I overlocked the seams and also all around the raw edges. This makes them quick to make and more durable for use.
I thought I’d share the muslin bag pattern with you, do let me know if you make any! If you don’t have an overlocker you could use french seams or stitch and zigzag the raw edges.
