How to Make a Bread Bag

20 by 17 piece of heavy duty fabric such as canvas or tickingThings to consider: Do not attempt to use a drawstring instead of the tie, it will not close tightly enough and you will have a small air hole at the t** pandora bracelets **op of your bag (I learnt the hard way). A tie closure means you can get it nice and tight around the neck of the bag, ensuring your bread stays fresh.

Using your iron, press down a quarter of an inch on the top of your piece of fabric, folding in to the wrong side of the fabric. Do this again with an** pandora bracelets **other quarter of an inch of fabric so that the raw edge is enclosed in the double fold.

Give your bag a square bottom by taking each corne** pandora bracelets **r, one at a time, and manipulating it so that the seam runs down vertically from the corner and you have a triangular shape. Using a ruler measure where the triangle is 4 across and draw a line here (in pencil). Stitch over the line.

Repeat for the other corner. Once you have stitched across both ** pandora bracelets **corners this way cut off the fabric triangle about half an inch from your stitches and then zigzag the seam of the bag.

The photographs are probably easier to understand than my garbled instructions.

Turn the bag right sides out. Now you can make your tape to tie the bag closed. Take your long thin piece of fabric and press the two short edges a quarter of an inch down, with wrong sides together. Then bring the two long edges together, wrong sides together and press. Then open up and fold over each edge again into the middle crease. Once the two edges are pressed into the middle of the strip of fabric fold it in half again along your middle crease and press again. Topstitch the edges together to close the strip of fabric. You should now have a strip of fabric tape to use as the tie for the bag.
