I'm a little obsessed with how my pantry looks (it's a sickness), so for some time, I have been wanting to do something about how flour, sugar, and rice is stored. I decided to use old fashioned cotton sacks, so I made this one today.
I will be making a tutorial for this very easy beginners project when I make the other sacks. For those who don't need a tutorial, basically, I measured the sack, cut out front and back, sewed it up and formed boxed corners on the bottom edge. I hemmed the top edge and then sewed in a strip of velcro. To keep the sack from sagging as the flour is used up, you can stuff it with grocery store bags if you are as fussy as I am.

I found the image in a google photo search, cleaned it up in Photoshop and used the transfer technique that is explained here.
