Week #3 Trash to Treasure. . .
Challenge: Make something out of something you would normally throw away
My Project: Tote from a dog food bag
Heather is making a fabric salvage bag
While I have always wanted to try a salvage project, when she told me the challenge this week I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Last year when we still had two big dogs I would buy our dog food in 20 pound bags from Target. The bags were made out of a heavy tyvec like material. While my hubby thought I was a bit nuts, I immediately knew I had to save them to make something. I think Ran will love having a library tote with a cute doggie on it.
Here are my two old bags, all ready to be turned into useful bags.
