posted about these produce bags, I fell in love with the idea. I despise having to waste those plastic bags in the grocery store. I often skip a bag, but this tends to elicit glares from the cashier trying to round up my wayward tomatoes as they roll along the conveyor belt.
But back to these beautiful bags. I loved the idea of color, transparency, and lightweight material. I never actually made it fabric shopping to buy netting. But then a week ago I ended up with a huge, yellow, plastic mesh bag with produce in it and decided to make use of it for the project. Since all I had was yellow and I couldn't replicate all the rich colors used in the tutorial, I made some freezer paper stencils of various veggies and sewed patches onto the bags to liven them up a bit. I skipped the drawstring on top, and used a zigzag stitch so it would be easy to catch all the loose ends of the mesh.
