Thank you for this tutorial, I have recently started making my own bread and I have been at a loss as to how I should store it! I am going to work on one of these this week!

What a beautiful way to use my scraps. Thanks for sharing :)

Does keeping the bread in linen help keep is crusty? I've been looking for a way to store my bread as well....

This is so lovely! Would it work for wine too? Your tutorial was just excellent and so easy to follow. Thank you, Katie and Adelaide Lemonade!

Thanks for sharing! I was just thinking that I needed to figure out a better way to store my bread.

Fab tutorial, thank you so much. x

This is so pretty!!! I posted a link to your tutorial on Craft Gossip Sewing:

Thanks everyone for your nice comments!

Beth, I think it would work for wine as well, but I'm toying around with another tutorial specifically for wine. I'd like to make another drawstring bag with more padding and a round bottom. When I figure it out, I'll post it on the blog. (Don't hold your breath for too long though because I have a few other projects lined up in front of that one.) Then I'll just have to find the perfect picnic basket to go with both the wine bag and the bread bag and of course a good picnic quilt!

Debbie, the linen probably would help keep the bread crusty, but the bag I made is lined with cotton. We usually eat the bread so fast that it doesn't matter, but I think you're on to something. I bet that if you used a fabric with a really loose weave like linen or burlap, it would help keep the bread crusty. Have you ever noticed how if you buy bread in a plastic bag at the supermarket, it has all those little holes? I bet the linen would have the same effect.

Happy sewing and happy baking everyone. If you make a bread bag, I'd love to know how it turns out!

Thank you for this! I think I am going to try it with burlap.
