Happy Earth Day! We thought it only appropriate to share a recycled craft today. My boys are always losing/leaving/misplacing their bags so I thought if I had them make their own they’d either not want to lose it because they made it themselves, or find it easy and want to make more when they can’t find these.

You can end there or make a diagonal stitch on the sides like this to help open up the bottom of the bag just a bit and reinforce the corners.

This was the boys’ first time sewing so they aren’t straight, it took a while and it’s no where near perfect but for this project it doesn’t matter one bit!

Turn right side out and fill!
