I'm one of those annoying "tote" people. I have a bag for everything, and it finally gets to the point where I frustrate myself trying to find what bag something is in. SO - this tutorial is perfect for me!

I'm a big fan of the Morsbag people - check their site at morsbags.com for a simple tote pattern, one you can easily adapt or fancify.

I think that even with my 8th grade home ec sewing skills, I can still pull off the mini tote. Love that 2-fabric combo!

A person can never have too many totes! Well, maybe MP Amy, but otherwise.... ;)

These are so cool! I have to admit it but I don't even use a pattern for my bags but love just seeing the shapes of others for inspiration.

I agree that one can never have too many totes! Plus they make fantastic gifts. It's never too early to start for Christmas, right? ;-)

bag studios said...

One of the reasons why i love tote bags is that you can create one for yourself. It will be unique and you will surely cant find the same design from any bag studios plus it will be valuable because you made it yourself.
