Today, I am going to show you how easy it is to make a linen bread bag. I’ve already told you how a linen bag is the best way to keep your bread fresh in Goodbye stale bread. How to keep bread fresh longer.
I’m not saying a linen bread bag is a miracle worker that will keep bread from ever turning stale; it is just a far better option than paper or plastic!
Why is linen better? The woven fibers that comprise linen make it breathable and a wonderful material to preserve bread. Linen will keep the inside of a bread loaf soft and maintain the crisp crust better than another type of storage.
Give it a try and enjoy your bread for a few more days!
- 9"x34" inch piece of linen
- Sewing machine
- Measuring tape or ruler
Fold a piece of linen in half. Beginning at the fold, measure 17 inches of linen. This will leave you with a total length of 34 inches (of unfolded linen).
The width of your folded linen will be around 9 inches.
Flip your bag right-side out and you’re all done!
