Upcycled bread bag

bread bag nz ecochick
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.

    I’m making bread using the fresh brewers yeast from my husband’s beermaking to make a sourdough starter. I’ve been adding a bit of honey to take the edge off the bitterness of the yeast and it’s delicious. Otherwise I use the five minute bread recipe if I don’t have time to knead…. though I do love kneading.
    I have a bread bag made out of an old pillowcase but I also have an old enamel bread bin which I love.

      Fantastic I love using things up. No kneading done here I use the bread maker or kenwood. Cool a pillowcase would work well too. I ahve a wonderful enamel bread bin too but don’t have room for it in the kitchen so it sits pretty in the laundry. Mx

    Your mum irons oh you lucky gal! I hate ironing unless it is for quilting.. Good idea for your bread bag.
    Love Leanne

      Hi there, how are you? Oh she irons at her house not here hehe. Though on the odd occasion I’ve been known to do her ironing. Nothing is ironed here much to my mother’s disgust she hates my crumpled tablecloths and napkins. Oh well Mx

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum
    it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but
    I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for first-time blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
