Blossom Bags

What do you all use for blossom bags?

I’m currently stapling them together out of bits of floating row cover, but am open to other methods.

I'm working with organza bags with the little drawstring. Cheap and quite handy!

Yes - I get them at the dollar store, 3 or 6 to a package, depending on size. Meant for little party favours, I guess, but as blossom bags they are ideal for most purposes. Very washable/re-usable too.

Drawstring bags of a very light gauze. Just yarn and scraps.

Yarn and scraps of lace curtains or paper tea bags.
Depending on how much stray pollen I'm suspecting to be in the wind.

Lace curtains here too and some organza bags.

I use cheap $Store teabags. As the fruit develops it tears through whatever is left of the bag.
