Doggie Foodable Tote Bags Tucker's How to Guide

Momma reuses our foodable bags by making totes out of dem.
Pretty cool, huh?  Well you can do it too, you just need a sewing machine.
Step1: Eat all your foodables (dis is the really easy part)

Step 2: Cut the bag, either trim the top or the bottom, or both.  Cut enough off so that you will have enough to make handles.

Step 3: Cut bag on the sides so you have two equal pieces.  

Step 4: Wash the bag, Momma just uses a dishcloth and dish soap but it depends on the type of bag you have what you can use.
Step 5: Face the two colorful sides together and sew the edges together.  

Step 6: Cut squares out of the bottom corners (Momma did a 5 inch square on this one but it depends on your bag size.  This bag is a 30lb bag)
 Step 7: Then sew the bottom piece together it will look like this when you stand it on it's non-sewed end
Step 8: Sew the following edges together (marked by color)
Step 9: Carefully turn the bag right side out.  
Step 10: Fold the open part in on itself and sew a nice edge.

Step 10: The extra pieces can be cut and sewed to make handles.  Attach the Handles to bag.
 Ta Da!

It takes a little practice and they don't always come out perfect.  But, if it all fails you'll just need to eat another bag of foodables so the hoomans can try again!


  1. Wow this is a super great idea! My mom likes to think she's crafty... but when it comes down to it, she's really not.

  2. Our mom is NOT crafty at all, butt is always uber (that's German)impressed by the craftiness of others. She loves those bags!! Really!

  13. Tucker, your mum is so clever. Hey, if you try and eat even more food your mum can make some more bags. Great recycling. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  14. Your momma is AH-mazing! Wow! I showed it to my mom but her eyes started glazing over about the time she realized she actually would have to sew something. Sigh.

  17. Your human is soo creative!! That is a great idea, tote bags are so useful :)

    Unfortunately we don't think making a tote back out of the bags our raw food comes in would be a good idea...maybe a bit stinky no matter home much you scrubed :p
