I love simple tote bags. I use a leather variation of this everyday and I was inspired to make this canvas one for Spring when I found some great trim at my local closeout fabric store Jomar. This is a great beginner project with a little flair.
Here are the materials that you will need:
- 1 piece of 34” x 15” cotton canvas fabric folded in half
- 2 pieces of 1-2 inch wide of trim
- 2 pockets cut out of your canvas fabric. I uploaded a pattern for you here.
- Straight Pins
- Fabric scissors
- Sewing machine with matching thread
Here is the 3 minute video on how to make the tote:
