With so many options available now for non-plastic produce bags how do you choose? You don’t! You make your own!

This super simple DIY is not only fun, but also makes great enviro-gifts! Which fabric will you choose? Before deciding, check out the full collections of Vegetable Garden & Fruit Stand here.

What you need:

.35m fabric (cotton, netting or mesh)
.75m cord

Bag sizes:

SM approx 6 x 9” (15 x 23cm)
MED approx 9 x 12” (12 x 30cm)
LG approx 12 x 15” (30 x 38cm)

What you do:

1.  Add 1” (2.5cm) to the width and 2” (5cm) to the height of bag dimensions.  For the large size bag cut 2 pieces 13” (33cm) x 17” (43cm).

2.  Fold the top edge of each piece down 1/2” (1.25cm) and press. 

3.  Pin the 2 pieces right sides together.  Mark 1.5” (3.75cm) from the top edges and stitch around sides and bottom between markings.  Zigzag stitch or serge sewn edges to prevent fraying.

4.  Clip seam at markings and press open.  Fold top down 1” (2.5cm) and topstitch along the bottom folded edge to create the cord casing.

5.  Using a safety pin, thread the cord through the casings and knot both ends together to secure. 

Optional:
Add a cord stopper to keep your bag tightly closed and cord end caps for a more polished look.

‘Costume Fantasia’ is our new ongoing branded collection of unique fabrics curated for you and your passionate imaginations.

Get inspired! Tag your project photos with #createyourhero and join the Fabricland Cosplay Group to engage with other Cosplayers.

What is Cosplay?

Costume play, or what is more popularly known as COSPLAY, is a decades old visual form of performance celebrating pop culture fandom.

Participants express themselves through highly creative dress up and role playing drawing inspiration from geek pop culture including, but not limited to video games, animation, comic books, literature and movies.

close up of fabric and notions

Cosplay is multidisciplinary, involving styling, hair and make up, prop making and, of course, costuming! Despite its crafting and sewing fundamentals, it’s inclusive of all skill levels. Cosplayers attend pop culture fandom conventions known as Cons.

The most actively visited ones include International Comicon and Canadian FanExpo. Here they can enter Cosplay competitions where the higher standard of accuracy in the construction of their character is recognized as Competition Cosplay; whereas Convention Cosplay focuses on the fun of dress up rather than the level of skill.

In either case, this passionate artistic hobby embraces crafting, imagination and innovation; all characteristics of the Fabricland community!

Although, Fabricland has always been a go-to place for all Cosplay needs, Cosplayers can further indulge their imagination and craft the heroes they want with this new collection.
