If you cannot find the bags you are looking for through a bakery supply 
source, or through a restaurant supply house, why not make muslin bags for 
your bread? Muslin is the least expensive of any material available, and if 
you can sew or have a friend/relative/friend's relative, etc., the sewing 
of a bag would take only about 2 minutes each. You can custom size them, 
put a draw string tie in the top and voila! Bread bags. :oD
