Macrame Produce Bag with a Fringe Bottom

Macrame Produce Bag

Do you have an old t-shirt with a hole in the sleeve, a stain on the front, or you just never wear anymore? This is a perfect project for repurposing an old t-shirt into an adorably fringed, macrame bag. These bags are like the classic produce bag and are great for carrying around fruits and veg, but you can get creative and carry around some other items like books or sports equipment.

This craft is suitable for older children and adults. It does not require many materials and can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours depending on how comfortable you are tying knots and whether you will sew by hand or use a sewing machine. I love preparing a few of these bags (getting them ready to knot) and keeping them beside the couch to macrame while I watch a show or film!
