Reduce your consumption of single use plastic with this Mesh Bag DIY! Simple to make and easy to wash; perfect for your next trip to the supermarket!

Step 1 – Cut a 40cm x 60cm rectangle of mesh. Increase or decrease the size based on the desired size of the bag.

Step 2 – Fold both side edges in 1cm and pin. Fold the top edge down 2cm and stitch 1.5cm from the fold to make a casing for the cord. Clip side edges just below the casing.

Step 3 – Fold the rectangle in half wrong sides together and stitch .5cm along side and bottom.

Step 4 – Turn right side in and hand press the seam. Stitch .5cm along side and bottom to make a french seam.

Step 5 – Turn right side out. Cut 55-60cm of cord. Attach a safety pin to one end and pull through the casing.

Step 6 – Add a cord stop and secure the ends with a knot.

Tip: Heat the ends of the cord with a lighter to stop fraying. * don’t try this with cotton cord!!!

Need a quick gift? Or just want something new and fun to keep you warm? Make a back-to-back throw in under an hour using cozy, fuzzy chenille.

It’s super simple with a lot of pins!  You need 1.3m of both the chenille fur for the face and the micro chenille for the back.  Trim selvedges and straighten both edges of the micro chenille to have a 1.25×1.5cm (50×60″) rectangle.  Lay the micro chenille over top of the fur chenille with right sides together and pin every 7cm (3″). Trim the chenille fur to match the micro chenille.  Stitch 1.25cm (.5″) around the entire throw leaving a 15cm (6″) opening.  Remove pins, turn right side out and hand or machine stitch the opening closed.  That’s it!
