What will we use to pick up dog poop?

March 1, 2009

So recently San Francisco became the first city to ban the use of plastic grocery bags.  Some folks we know in Sacramento are working on a similar campaign.  And while I think that the ban only applies to the big bags they use when you check out, and not produce bags, lately P and I have been thinking about ways to stop using the smaller produce bags as well.

We are already good about using cloth grocery sacks.  Although this photo is incriminating in a variety of other ways!

So today I made this drawstring sack out of some netting I had lying around.

I think I’m going to make a bunch of them in different sizes, using some stronger fabric for things like citrus, and some out of tulle or something less full o’ holes for things like beans and bulk grains.

After I figured out the correct tension for sewing netting, the bag was very easy to make.  I probably could have done without a pattern, but I followed the drawstring bag directions in Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross
