Over a year ago I saw a blog post about making an upcycled garden tote bag from a pet food bag at Garden of Eden Goods. I bookmarked it, and then when I started using Pinterest, it was one of the first things I pinned. Now, over a year later, I finally got around to making my own.
If you have been around the blog for a while, you know about my not so green thumb. You have also have seen how, slowly, over the years, my green thumb has been improving little by little (especially outside). This is the time of year we are constantly harvesting from our garden. I figured it was finally time to get this bag made!
I followed along much of the original tutorial, but had to change up a few things to make mine work.
- Pet food bag (washed)
- Sewing machine and thread
- Scissors or rotary cutter

Have you crossed any projects off of your to do list lately?
