In an effort to ditch plastic bags, fabric containers for bread (homemade or not) are a great way to haul your fresh finds home from the market or store them straight out of the oven. Here's a simple tutorial for making one from two dish towels!
Liz Stanley out of San Francisco always has a great project in the works. She's been busy making bread daily and was in need of a way to keep it as fresh as possible. You can always reuse plastic bags from loaves picked up at the grocery store, but if you have a bakery nearby or a farmer's market at your disposal, plastic bags might be (and hopefully are) a thing of the past.
Instead of having something frumpy to hold her fresh loaves, Liz whipped up these simple bread bags that are made from two dish towels and have a pretty little stencil on them. Check out the full tutorial over at Say Yes To Hoboken as it's a great way to put to use pretty towels and you could even give them away as gifts with a fresh loaf inside.
