While baking bread a few weeks ago, I decided to wrap up a loaf and bring it to a friend who had just kids bags home from an emergency room visit. But wouldn’t you know, I couldn’t find a bag to put it in.
On my next visit to Target, I grabbed a 3-pack of dishtowels that caught my eye. Many of you probably don’t need a tutorial to figure this one out, but I remember when I was just starting out on my sewing adventure, I loved having a step-by-step guide so I could visualize the whole process. Oh, and for the bread, I LOVE this book: Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Baking bread theses days is a snap! 3: cut your ribbon to 28″ long and fold in half.
I like to finish the edges so the bread doesn’t get little strings all over it. After borrowing it from the library, I immediately purchased a copy for myself. If you decide to give the bags a try I would love to see them! They make great thank you gifts for teachers! Thanks so much for the bag, this would make a great hostess gift- especially with a loaf of pesto bread inside, yum! Wonderful, I’ve had the book for a while and love it, some pretty bread bags would be a perfect addition.
You make it look too simple. I am just going to have to give it a try and wouldn’t this be an awesome year end gift for the teachers? My daughter has 5 this year! I’ve got a collection of teatowels that i wanted to create something with, and you’ve inspired me to get my book off the shelf and do some 5 minute bread!
Melissa, don’t you just love that book! I would love to see your bags! What a great ideaso much prettier that the cellophane I’ve been using. Will make great Christmas gifts for the ladies in the family. My husband has had the artisan breads book for a while now. He had a few flops when he first bought it so he gave up on it and it’s been sitting on the shelf for a few months.
