Ditch Plastic And DIY Your Own Bread Bags

Ditch Plastic And DIY Your Own Bread Bags

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.
