Farmers Market–Please No Plastic!

I needed reusable, washable bags to carry to the Farmers Market.

Something to tuck vegetables or a loaf of homemade bread into.

This small linen towel folded in half and stitched on both sides, makes the perfect bag.

I threaded a cotton string through the all ready existing casing, now at the top of the bag.

Farmers Market-No Plastic Please!

Your new little bag can be tossed into the washing machine.

Good for the environment and so much cuter to carry!

Farmer's Market-No Plastic Please

You can use vintage towels for this project, or purchase new towels to stitch up these bags.

Enjoy!

  1. Th is was perfect timing, last week I came home with 3 plastic bags because I didn’t catch until later that my purchases weren’t being put in my reusable shopping bag loosely. I’m going to stitch up a few of these for next week’s shopping.

    1. I have a few more little linens lined up for this project!
      When we went to San Francisco a couple of years ago, we went to some Farmer’s Markets–I loved seeing all the different bags people carried!, and oh my—the best produce!!!
      Ahhh memories of a great trip. 🙂
