Free Bag Making Tutorial



We all love tote bags to carry our amazing range of “non-purse suitable” items. My recent “list” of such items has included items like books, magazines, half finished apples and other treats, children’s ‘found treasures’, sweaters, gloves, school projects, rope, new shower curtain, a range, recyclables, diapers and associated gear,…. Oh, I can’t remember what else. Nor do I need to as now, here is the solution: gorgeous (washable?!) tote bags, leaving our coach bags neat and clean.

Tote Description

This tote is a 14″ x 11″ x 3-1/2″ deep tote with one exterior pocket and two interior pockets- one zippered. It is designed for hard wear with two layers of fabric at the bottom and straps that won’t rip off.

Fabric shown on the exterior of the bags above are no longer for sale, however, there are many other pretty modern design fabrics that you can buy by the yard. What’s important is that you go for an equally large and bold print with strong contrasting colors to get a similar effect as the bag shown here.



Best Tote Bag Tutorial You’ve Ever Seen

I had a complete amazingly well-illustrated tutorial for this bag, but it has been taken off-line by JCaroline.

If you are interested in this bag pattern, leave me a comment below. If I get enough requests for it, I’ll make you the pattern for this bag. Okay?!

Meanwhile: have a look at this pattern, which is a similar tote bag but with a load of internal pockets (ie. a highly desirable added feature for a tote bag!): http://craftsredesigned.blogspot.com/2010/04/hand-bag-tutorial.html
