The following picture is to prove my theory: "if it isn't moving, you can sew it!" :-) On a longarm list I read daily, someone made a tote out of a dog-food bag. She was inspired by this website: http://www.soaustin.com/home a lady in Texas recycles bird-food bags into totes and gets an amazing $20 reselling them! I just had emptied a chicken-feed bag the other day , and just had to try it out. Her bird-seed bags are much more colorful, this one for the chickens is a boring tan. Anyway, I think it will be a great way to carry all those apples we will pick off of our trees this fall. Sturdy, and disposable if needed. Not to mention, one-of-a-kind! ! !
