Chicken Feed Bag Tutorial

Sew your chicken feed bag into a super cute fabric bag. Great for holding fabric, yarn, ribbon, thread or anything else in the house!

We got a few new chicks a couple of weeks ago……they came with a duck too!  They are so super cute, but eat a bundle.   That’s ok though because their feed bag is super cute and they are great for a few fun projects.

The first project sewn together is a fabric bucket style.  It’s perfect for storing fabric bundles, yarn, thread, notions…whatever really!

Chicken Feed Bag Tutorial:

1)  Cut the ends off of the bag or remove the white tied binding closure it comes with.

2)  Wipe down the inside of the bag

3)  Cut your bag into the size you’d like….my measurements came out to be 19″ X 10″

4)  Sew the bottom of the bag

5)  Cut the corner out 2″ X 2″

6)  Re-fold so the bottom seam is in the center- lining up the cut ends- sew across.  This is a box your corner technique.

7)  Repeat this process with the lining —if you find that you’d like your bag a little stiffer, add interfacing at this point to the lining.

* when sewing across the bottom of the lining, leave a 3″ opening for turning

8)  With right sides together, sew across the top edge of the bag
