DIY Grocery Bags for Produce

DIY grocery bags and sustainable options for grocery transport are all over the place. Pretty much any tote bag can double as a grocery-transporting piece. It can be hard to find a safe way to transport delicate produce, however. If you are looking to avoid the plastic, store-provided bags for your apples, oranges, limes, and lettuce, sew up a handful of these DIY Grocery Bags for Produce. Your fruits and veggies will thank you when they arrive home bruise-free.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made these from a new curtain so I got six bags for $8 not counting ribbon I had on hand in about five minutes per bag including cutting time and picking out ribbon. I want to sell these to raise money for breast cancer research. Jill, do you mind if I use your pattern for this purpose? Also, cut your ribbon (or cord) about 8 to 10 inches longer than double the width so you can cut off the holes from the safety pin and can open the bag completely. I also double sewed the bottom. These will be great for packing - socks in one, underwear in another, with different color ribbons, and another for the dirty clothes. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern!!!!!

Hi Linda! That sounds like a great cause! There is a good chance the designer of this project won't see your request on this page. Please contact her on her website (which you can find by clicking on the project link), if you're interested in securing permission to sell the bags from this tutorial. Happy sewing!

Mmmmm, those apples look pretty good. You know what else looks good, that bag, great bag man real good stuff I would certainly use my best fabric. Keep it going all free sewing.

Thanks so much Peter!
