Reuable Produce Bags

I'll be back later this year with an easy DIY tutorial for these bags, but in the meantime, you can order them through my Etsy shop here.
 The first batch I made were from plain white cotton double gauze. The side and bottom seams are done with a french seam that covers all the raw edges of the fabric.
 The top cotton drawstring is threaded through a simple casing and finished with an overhand knot.
 Stays tight from the grocery store to home and is easy to open and close.
 And then I tried to brand them with my logo using block printing. I really enjoyed doing this but due to customer request and the extra time required, I am no longer putting printing on the bags.
 Because not all bulk items come in large quantities, I've changed things up and added a medium and a small bag to the line up.
 And I bought a serger to do the side and bottom seams. AND I recruited my daughter-in-law, Leanne to make these for me.
She now makes and finishes all the reusable produce bags in my Etsy shop. If you're in the Calgary area, contact me direct at magpiequilts(at)gmail(dot)com and we can arrange a pick up time and a local discount!

What other reusable products do you think we should make?
