What is it that makes these Easily Maintained Market Totes so user-friendly? For one thing, these DIY bags are reusable, meaning that you won't have to compromise with excessive paper or plastic bags in your home after your trip to the store.

For another, this tutorial teaches you how to sew bags for the market out of old bedsheets. This is an awesome idea for those who know the aftereffects of spilling a bottle of milk or other food items. Keep these bags in business for years by tossing them in the wash when they get messy.

I have made many totes before but not one using bedding. What a clever idea and a great way to use up some sheets you are not using anymore or look for some at thrift stores. I love making my own bcause you can make any size you like and they help save the planet. I always end up giving mine away. I love the straps on these market totes. I will make some more to use at my shopping trips out of some interesting sheet. Great tutorial too.

I have done this, and I got 7 bags out of a queen size cover, just using the top. Well done tutorial.
