The chicken feed bag is perfect for storing fabric bundles, yarn, thread, notions…whatever really! It’s super easy and quick to sew. It’s a great way to reuse & recycle.
- 1 feed sack
- fat quarter of fabric
1) Cut the ends off of the bag or remove the white tied binding closure it comes with.
2) Wipe down the inside of the bag
3) Cut your bag into the size you’d like….my measurements came out to be 19″ X 10″
4) Sew the bottom of the bag
5) Cut the corner out 2″ X 2″
6) Re-fold so the bottom seam is in the center- lining up the cut ends- sew across. This is a box your corner technique.
7) Repeat this process with the lining —if you find that you’d like your bag a little stiffer, add interfacing at this point to the lining.
* when sewing across the bottom of the lining, leave a 3″ opening for turning
8) With right sides together, sew across the top edge of the bag
9) Pull everything out the opening in the lining and stuff the lining inside the bag
10) Sew across the top
