Here is my best attempt to date at sewing a tote bag from feed bags. The handles are a little bit odd, but it's sturdy and spacious. I'm sure I would not be able to recreate this design if I tried. Alas, the seventh grade home economics sewing lessons were lost on me. Here are easy-to-follow instructions for making a feed bag tote.

I may be pushing the envelope a little far with this idea, (pun unabashedly intended) but necessity being the mother of invention, it had to be done. I forgot to pick up Tyvek® envelopes and I need them to ship a Henbag to Italy one day. It occurred to me that feed bags are at least as sturdy as Tyvek® and as luck would have it, I possess the bare minimum sewing ability to create a fashionable and functional envelope out of one. The postmaster thinks I'm nuts, but that's just fine with me.
