Project Sixty Six: Three Fabric Bread Bags
My mum bakes a lot of home-made bread, and I recently had a request from my parents to make them some bread bags to keep this home-made bread fresh in. This was just the excuse I needed to buy the ticking I had been coveting in my local fabric shop.
I made the bags with squared bottoms and, at first, a drawstring closure at the top. However, I soon realised that once the drawstring was pulled tightly closed there was still a small opening in the bag, so I scrapped the drawstring idea and instead attached cotton ribbon to the top of the bag in order to tie the bag closed. This gave a much more airtight closure than the original drawstring.
Of course, in order to try out the new bread bags I had to bake some bread (I do love the smell of bread in the oven, and nothing beats the taste of home-made bread). We then had a delicious supper of fresh bread, Camembert and Stilton and a salad of avocado, tomato, cucumber and Mozzarella. Absolute heaven.
