Homemade log Tote

Macgyver really needed a log tote and today I made him one. He favors his right arm when taking wood to the furnace room. The man fills up his entire arm with wood to carry and over time it has hurt his shoulder and it cuts into his arm. In the spirit of keeping the husband in good working order for other forms of wifely torture, I made him a helper. I rolled it out in 10 minutes and recycled/upcycled an empty dogfood bag.
I used an empty dogfood bag for the log tote. I cut the bottom off and a 2 inch strip down the side. It doesn’t matter which side. Toss the bottom you cut off but keep the side panel or panels as it turns out. They will be your handles for the tote.
Now that you have all 3 pieces it is time to hit the sewing machine.
Fold both of your 2 side strips in half and run a stitch from top to bottom. Now you have the handles. Take your rectangle pice of dogfood bag and run a half to 1 inch seam down all 4 sides. Stitch the handles on and don’t forget to reverse stitch it several times due to the weight of wood.
That is all there is to it!

Not bad and works very well for him.
