Upcycled rice bags

When I visited my mom last week she gave me a pile of empty rice sacks that she'd been saving for me.

She asked if I would make her a bag from one of them.

Here is the bag-


It was tricky to make because she wanted fleece as the liner. It stretched when I sewed with it. 


Here is the back with the pocket. The front had a zipper to open.

I also sewed a simple tote bag with another bag. I found this awesome video that showed me how to sew it. I can't wait to make more of this style.


I'm excited to try it out next time I go grocery shopping. I will update soon!

Update- It tore along the seams. Won't be making another one anytime soon.
