Well, don't leave us hanging? Where's the pattern?

I think it turned out pretty well.  I wanted to do something with the pretty pink bag.  I may make some more out of the blue ones.


I recently talked my wife and daughter into making some of these tote bags.  She's made one prototype so far and wants me to ask what sort of thread you used to sew the bag with?  We're thinking heavy duty craft thread.

I don't remember,, it was on a member's blog!

I used just regular sewing thread - not heavy duty, though that wold probably be a good idea!  I used Fushia because that was the closest thing to pink I had.

Oh, I should add that I sewed all the seams twice, for extra strength.

I love the feed sack bags!! Most of mine are paper, which I use in the garden. I open up the bags, flat, and put them on my garden beds, cut holes for the plants and voila!! NO WEEDS wee

I really love the bag!  Great job!  I have one of those pink feed bags and now I know what to do with it!  When I bought it last month....I even commented to the clerk that I loved the color and the idea for breast cancer awareness.  I plan to go back to tractor supply tomorrow so I really hope they still have a few left!

I recently saw a bag on etsy for a bag made from a dog food bag and it cost $15.  You could just use a feed bag instead.  If you do a search for bags made from dog food bags you get a few new ideas.  They even have a messenger bag that you could use for the geo caching bag at http://www.ehow.com/how_5559605_recycle-dog-food-bag.html.
