The old-fashioned term………….. Waste not, want not.
The new modern term…….up cycle.
Today, after fluffing and puffing the chicken coop, adding a fresh hanging cabbage and some jaunty St. Patty’s Day decor, I made something useful. I took the empty feed sack into my sewing room and made a Fresh new grocery bag with handles. Each daughter in law will get a bag full of gifts for their birthday! I made the bag today out of empty chicken feed sack. They hold 25 pounds of feed, so I am guessing they will hold lots of birthday loot and then can be used for groceries. If they go to the grocery store and say, buy a chicken and some eggs, using this bag will certainly be funny.
The project was quick, easy and the finished product is pretty sassy.
