Upcycled Totes from Feed Bags

Upcycled Totes from Feed Bags featured at I Gotta Create!

Creativity and recycling
are two of my favorite things.

And when that results in something
beautiful, whimsical and functional,
you can bet it gets my 5-star seal of approval!

These bags are all that
and a bag of potato chips, too.
Actually... they were feed bags.
And they're super cool!

You can use them for grocery shopping,
picnics, the beach or pool, ball games, 
and so much more.

I'm thinking Mother's Day,
Earth Day, Father's Day, Teacher Appreciation...
They are such a unique and
whimsical conversation piece!

I love these. My grandmother would faint if she new people were making totes from feed bags. :0) So fun!!
Our Simply Create Link party is going on right now. I would love to have you link up, as I'm sure my followers would like to see what you created too. Hope to see you soon!
