Plastic bags don't breathe and keep moisture in. Paper bags get tossed out. But linen, linen makes perfect bread bags.
So I gathered some of my tea towels and made simple drawstring bread bags. I've saved so much cord and ribbon that I used what I had in my stash as drawstrings.
Step 1: Seam up the sides. I used my serger for this. You can use a regular machine and sew up the sides or do french seams.
|I really love my serger|
Step 2: Fold the top down to make a casing for your drawstring. Since the top of the towel already has a finished edge you don't need to have it doubled under.
Step 3: Insert string.
