    Feed Bag Tote Bag

    I just made my first, with 4 more bags sitting here to be done. Actually I'm wondering if it wouldn't make things a bit easier if you took the handle strips off first. That would be less bag to have to handle turning inside out and back again. Also maybe I read the directions wrong but I cut off 2 strips for handles. When I measured, one strip made both handles.Regular thread and needle worked fine for me. Actually I was very suprised since I just pulled my Singer out of the closet for the first time in 15 years to make these bags. It is working like a champ! I was reading some of the comments and "Thanks!" I never would have thought to use my dog and cat food bags, just didn't come to mind.

So thank you all.My one suggestion might be to show clearer pictures, especially when it comes to the handles. I realize this isn't rocket science, but as someone who hasn't touched my machine in over 15 years, I was seeking lots of details that weren't clearly defined or pictured. In the end it all came out fine and I'm sure further bags will have straighter more even stitching and straighter seams but overall a great tutorial!!! THANKS!!!
