Upcycled Produce Bag with a Drawstring

upcycled produce bag with a drawstring

Are you like me and never get rid of your old dish-towels? Because if you are, you probably have a full drawer of fabric that you never use! This is a perfect project for repurposing all of those dish-towels to create produce (or bulk) bags with drawstrings!

This DIY craft is suitable for older children and adults. It does not require many materials and can vary in length depending on whether you will sew by hand or use a sewing machine. When I sew with a machine and get into a rythm, I can make one bag in 20 minutes! So I like to set myself up with a stack of old fabric and make a big batch of these bags in one afternoon.
