    I make them all the time. As far as making a profit, I never tried to sell them. It takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to make one. What would you sell them for and how much is your time worth, not to mention supplies, electricity, transportation and market entry fees? I used them for grocery bags and general use. I also give some away, people think they're quite the novelty item. There are different sites you can find on BYC to make them. Have fun....you'll find lots of uses for them too.

    you need to check out the "everything else for sale" section. Feed totes sell between 10-20 dollars plus shipping a bag. So yes ! profitable IMO.

    If you know how to sew, just make up your own instructions, I did. Just figure out how large you want the bag to be and how fancy. With mine, I use them for grocery shopping mostly, so I didn't line them with anything, just a feed bag with feed bag handles.
