Great idea! You are going to have a lot of people copying these!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful idea!

Great idea! I love this. I will definitely be doing this and my Walmart has $1.00 yd sheer fabric at this moment, so this will be a steal to make! Thanks so much for your review!

kim, my fabric was $4 but I will be on the hunt for some $1 fabric too. Make sure that its the lightest fabric you can find. You dont want to add weight to the scale.

Do you think a bridal Illusion would work for this bag?

This is a revelation to me. I always use cloth grocery bags but have never thought of making produce bags that can be used over and over. I love it!

What a cool idea - I hadn't thought about making produce bags. Must go through the stash now . ..

Good idea. I have been trying to reuse my plastic produce bags to cut down on consumption and waste. The problem is I forget to bring the darn things with me. I'll need to make a lot of these and keep them in the trunk with my Trader Joe bags.

I have sooo many reusable grocery bags but no reusable produce bags. This is a great idea, I'm making some too, asap!

Great to see your bags, I'm in the middle of making some out of nylon net.

BettyMike said...
thanks Deepika. I've thought for a couple of years that I should make something like this, just wasn't sure what fabric to use. I'll be on the lookout for sheer fabric!

I whipped some up out of organza (which was wider than the chiffon Joann's had). I used them for the first time last night at Safeway. Alas, no female checkers were at any of the checkouts, so I thought I wouldn't get any comments. But the young, male bagger I wound up with made a BIG fuss over them! He thought they were just the best thing ever! Thanks, Deepika - now I have the prettiest produce bags around - pale pink, blue, lavendar, green, and yellow :-)

Wow that is so cool Nadine. I still haven't inaugurated my bags. Going to a nearby farmers market right now so they'll be quite useful. I gotta make more of these. And I think they'll make great gifts for eco-minded people.

Deepika - I'm headed to our local Farmer's Market right now, with some more I made just this morning. So did yours get rave reviews yesterday? :-)

Deepika said...
Well I ended up going to the farmer's market too yesterday but there nobody noticed them. But my husband did say, "what's that fancy bag the cherry tomatoes are in". So I told him that I made it to discontinue the use of plastic produce bags. I dont know if he was impressed but he did look at me in disbelief ;-)

This is such a great idea, I need to make a bunch of these! LOL about your DH's reaction (sounds like my DH, he thinks I'm nuts :o) )

Hilary, these bags are great. Only thing is I need more! and I am thinking of making tiny ones too for herbs/garlic few onions etc. They passed beautifully at the grocery store too. The clerk was able to look at the produce inside the bag and ring it.
