I've also seen on etsy some crafters who make reusable totes from pet food bags, like this shop Prancing Pony, and this shop Cluck Cluck Craft.
I decided to make a case for our new Kodak Playsport video Camera. This bag is a very heavy duty foil, the kind that you can't rip and that helps the food the bag holds retain moisture. To prepare the bag, cut it into sections and wash it because it smells like dog food! Dry it well. For this project I used an 8.5inch x 4inch rectangle and a 5inch X 4inch rectangle. I also had some left-over felted wool from my wool soaker project so I decided to line the inside of the pouch with it.

This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) hosted by Calley, The Eco Chic, and is part of a one month challenge to create from trash. This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items.
