Bread Bags

Making bread bags has been on my to do list for well, ages. Considering it only took me ten minutes, with distractions, I should have done it ages ago. I have been wanting to come up with a more natural storage solution for keeping our bread and had decided on cloth bags. Shortly after, I saw Mousy Brown’s tutorial and decided that was just the thing. Funnily enough, I picked up these tea towels to make them when we were at the Ikea in Philly. When I went back to the tutorial, I realized that I had bought the exact same ones. I love how they turned out, they are a good weight and should be just right for keeping our bread fresher, longer. If you are looking for a new way to store your bread, give these a try, they are quick, very easy, and really nice to look at.

    The bread bag is wonderful and a great excuse to take a trip to IKEA. More important the bread looks scrumptious, can you provide the recipe?

    Mairzdotes, Sorry, the bread was from the farmer’s market, but I am going to be working on my own version soon. If I get it right I’ll make sure to post a recipe.

    They look great! Glad the tutorial works and hope you enjoy using them (mine are still going strong). 😀

    Great idea! I haven’t done much bread making this summer but hope to get back into the swing of it soon. Hope you’re doing well!

  6. Good solution! I’ve been wondering what the traditional way to store bread was before the invention of plastic bags. I’ve been just keeping mine on the cutting board, cut side down, and that works nicely if you eat the loaf within 4 days.
    Looking forward to trying the tea towel method.
    Thanks,
    Rachel
