With selling these bags on our website (www.choppingblockfarm.com,) etsy, ebay and Farmer's Markets- we pay for our feed completely! What better way to save money for spring projects than to make money from what you already have lying around.
You will need:
* a feed bag
* Sewing Machine (thread)
*ruler (if you wanna be picky)
Free (if you use the feed, and potential profit if sold at farmer's markets)
9-19$ if you purchase the feed just for the bag, but most people will happily give theirs away!
I made this entire bag INCLUDING time to take pictures for this instructable in 50 minutes. Without stopping to take pictures (or measure exactly) I can finish one in about 40 minutes. This is literally the first sewing project I have ever started to try to reuse some of our bags and I have made about 10 of these so far. It is very simple :)
Step 1: Acquire 40-50lb Feed Bag.
Step 2: Cut The Bag
Cut the bottom of the bag off. We generally cut only 1-2" off, but keep in mind you can cut off as much as you'd like but it will affect bag dimensions.
