Tulle Drawstring Produce Bags

Tulle Drawstring Produce Bags

Hehe...I actually made some of these before I saw this post, but I thought I'd post anyhow. I made my bags out of tulle instead of netting and used a ribbon drawstring. Tulle is great because it doesn't allow much of anything to get through and it's somewhat stretchy, so you can cram large items like bananas into them. Whenever I take them to the grocers, I get tons of comments on them! I've actually had some people ask if I could make them some!

I have a bag I made for all my re-usable grocery bags and it has a special pocket for my mesh produce bag, so I needed it to lay flat and fit in the pocket. I get a lot of comments on this little bag as well as the tote I have for it and all the other bags.
