Produce bags was one of the other sewing projects on my to do list. I did a bit of research on the internet and one of the important things I learned is that what ever bag and closure I use will add weight to my produce and cost me more. I am very tired to have a stack of thin plastic bags in my house. I generally collect 10-15 of those during my regular grocery shopping.
I wanted something that the store clerk can easily open if they want to check the code on produce. These clips are heavy I think so I am hoping to find silicone ties. I guess I could use store twist ties if I wanted. I will look for reusable silicone bag ties.
I chose sheer drapery fabric in hopes that they are see through enough for codes to be discerned. I cut several sizes with sides seams and the fold at the bottom which makes it stronger. I made french seams on the sides and a simple hem at the top.
Looking forward to seeing how these work. I will post and update once they have been put through their paces.
