How To Make A Reusable Bulk-Food Bag: What You’ll Need
Muslin: This can be purchased at your local fabric store. If you want to make multiple bags, buy at least a yard. If you just want to try it, you’ll only need 1/2 yard and still be able to make around four bags. If you want unbleached fabric, go with the natural color muslin.
Old cotton T-shirt: While you can go with white or gray, it’s more fun to pick a colored shirt.
Stencils: These can be purchased at your local craft store. It’s best to get the “peel and stick,” as they make it really easy to ink the stencil on the fabric.
Fabric marker: If you don’t already own these, try the Crayola brand Fabric Markers that you’ll find in the kid’s crafts section. They are less expensive (by a lot sometimes!) and work just as well.
Rotary cutter and cutting mat:These aren’t a necessity, but they make it super easy to cut everything you need. Scissors will do just fine to cut the straight edges you need for this project.
Cardboard (not pictured): This can come from an old cereal box or package. You just need something stiff enough to make the stenciling easy and to keep it from bleeding through the fabric while you work.
