We make our own bread and since plastic free July I actually haven’t bought any since. It’s kind of become Mr Ecochick’s job to make bread he he. He’s at a point where he can make a wholemeal loaf from memory (it helps that he has an almost photographic memory!). Normally I wrap the loaf in a tea towel for storage but I wanted to make a bread bag. So mum was ironing the other day (I’m so not my mother’s daughter! I never iron I don’t even know where my ironing board is) and had an old tea towel so off to the sewing machine she went. She simply stitched two sides together. I then found a piece of ribbon that I tied around the top and and voila I now have a cool upcycled bread bag
Check out my cool bread bag in my cupboard. I guess we’ll use it several times then I’ll throw it in the washing machine to be reused over and over again. Thanks mum you rock.
