Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Handmade Log Carrier

We have been wanting a log carrier for years and now we finally have one!  It took a little bit of creative thinking to make this, but an hour is all it took for this project! 

This project requires two butterfly chair cases.  For demonstration purposes, I included a picture of two bags so you can see what I'm referring to. 

I wish this post could be a tutorial but I didn't think about making this crafty project into a blog post until half way through sewing it.  Basically I cut the ends off two bags, overlapped them to create a reinforced center, and sewed all the seams to keep it together and to prevent fraying.  Note: I left the straps alone---no sewing.
Dimensions: 22W x 31L

The carrier works really well!  The material is easy to clean, light weight, and sturdy.
