We use only re-cycled or vintage materials in order to reduce waste even more. Some of our sources include clothing from second-hand stores, left over fabric found in garage sales, etc. We prefer polyester/cotton blends to give the strength and durability needed.
Just cut out the fabric, sew together sides and handles. Make enough so you don't have to make extra gas-guzzling trips to the store.
(good for beginners because they do'nt have to pay too much attention to straight seams.)
Need: 24" long, 45" wide cotton or cotton/polyester blend fabric.
