Grain Bag Project Bag

My Grandpa worked at a seed plant for over 30 years and he worked with these seed and grain sacks on a daily basis. He even mended them when need be. My Mom got a huge roll of them when they sold off the seed plant and had no idea what to do with them. Then she realized they'd make great bags. So I took a bunch, washed them like crazy, and whipped up this! My Mom needs a new project bag to haul around her crochet and I think this will be just great. Durable, washable, and even a bit sentimental seeing as her Dad probably filled this bag full of seed more than once.
I think I'll be making more of these with embroidery on them for my Etsy shop. I also think they'd make great reusable shopping bags!
