These organic cotton prints are perfect for your next project.

The cotton is grown to have a low impact on the environment without the use of toxic pesticides and uses low-impact dyes and finishes. It is strictly monitored from seed to finished product and must pass regular inspections to earn the coveted GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certificate.

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.

Making this origami crossbody bag is easy and fun and oh-so-rewarding. Mix bag and lining fabrics to match all your outfits and add your own strap styles and embellishments to create extra personal touches.

It’s easy to adjust the size to make smaller as an evening bag or bigger for shopping … just be sure the rectangle size is length is 3 times longer than the width.

What You Need:
.3m of 150cm boiled wool fabric (or similar weight)
.3m of lining fabric (any width)
1.2m faux leather or other trim for the strap
2x triangle rings
2x swivel hooks

STEP 1:
Cut 1 piece each of the wool and the lining 36×12”. With right sides together, sew around all edges leaving a small opening.

STEP 2:
Turn right side out, press flat and edge stitch around the entire rectangle. Mark 14” on top and bottom edge as diagram and fold as shown.

STEP 3:
Fold sides towards the center along top and bottom points and pin. Machine stitch in place as far as possible along edgestitch end as shown. Hand stitch remaining opening to the point.

STEP 4:
Flip over and repeat. It will be trickier to sew the flap to the body on the 2nd side. Sew as far as you can and hand stitch remaining opening closed.

STEP 5:
Fold top of the bag tips over triangle ring bar and stitch in place as shown. Cut the strap to your preferred length, fold ends over swivel hooks as shown and stitch.

STEP 6:
Attach handle and add embellishments such as tassels or appliqués to personalize.

With the swivel hooks, it’s easy to make multiple straps to suit your mood or for an extra-easy version, just sew the strap trim directly to the corners of the bag.
