    Have you thought about looking in thrift stores for men’s/ boys basketball singlets? They’re usually quite big so you’d probably get enough fabric out of them for at least a bag each.

      Thanks! They weigh barely anything. I’ve made some larger ones too for corn and lettuce. Happy sewing!

      Not for this one. My first ‘prototype’ I used some old tulle of some sort that I found at the salvation army but they did not hold up for that long. I’m always on the lookout when I’m at a thrift shop for something that will work!
