I'm thinking about making some for my guild's boutique. I'll test it before asking for more bags from the member there. I have one cat food bag already so that'll be my test. Sounds like a great, durable, tote.... as long as it isn't smelly.

This is awesome. I don't have dogs... but with 6 cats, I buy the large cat bags. However they are not plasticy types, they are tearable paper. hum. Next idea? Bird seed? Oh wait! They have dogs next door!

This is fun. In my zany family, I can see me making the dog food bags, stitching mock 'santa hats' on the dogs using scraps from my stash... putting a bow on em and using them for Christmas GIFT bags! A hit!

Thanks!

hey kwendt think about it if the bags hold cat food then give them a try with the totes. If they are strong enough then they should hold up to your groceries. right ??? Tumrub

Yes and no. If you stitch em, wouldn't it be just like putting in a line of perferations? It'll just rip out. Plus, you can't get them wet. Never.

Never fear, I'll find something that will work. Last week I threw out the 20 lb bird seed bag. THAT would have worked.
