i took a look at my dwindling fabric stash and found that i had some pieces of liberty of london fabric that could do the trick. i love these fabrics for bulk bags because they are beautiful and 100% cotton. they are also very lightweight (so wouldn't add weight to bulk items at the register) and tightly woven (so that bits can't sift through + i think they could keep the bread fresh longer).
i became surprisingly happy making these bags. it will be a treat to shop with these little lovelies...and i will embrace every bit of lovely i can add to the task of grocery shopping! :)
