Apple Sack Produce Bag

The ad free, low cost PDF version of this pattern can be purchased HERE.

The Apple Sack Produce Bag was designed to reduce usage of single use plastic bags, use it in place of those thin plastic produce bags and reuse over and over. The handles were made long enough so you can tie the bag closed and keep your produce confined, it has a great amount of stretch so you fit quite a bit of produce in it. Make a bunch and keep them with your reusable grocery bags!
