    Orangebishop Bag

    So my wife brought home a sack of delicious oranges from the store the other day. And as I sat munching one of those oranges I pondered the bag itself, and I was struck with inspiration. Thus was born...

    The Orangebishop bag!

    I'm not sure how durable it will be, but I'm grapefruit, err grateful to have had the chance to try it out. Lemon *cough* lemme guess that someone must have tried this before. If so, orange ya gonna tell me that it's just a matter of lime, ah, I mean time until it breaks?

    I like your idea. (It has lots of a-peel.) I have used similar bags for stuff sacks with some success. If you pull the drawstrings too tight they can stretch or break, but overall I have not had problems.

    Being a collector of Orange gear, you had my hopes up for a moment there....

    The bag may not last very long, but it's a great idea none the less. Your creativity in gear and words is commendable!

    It only has to last until I can finish another 5 lbs of oranges!

    Another great use for an orange bag. And a delicious, nutritious way to get there
