I made my very own tote bag for this weekend’s trip to DC and I’ve got to say… it was much easier than I thought it would be! I think I might start making these more often. Christmas gifts, anyone? ;]
1 yd of fabric [I did two 1/2 yards of diff fabric]
sewing machine [10x easier]
First, I cut two pieces of each fabric into the size I wanted my tote sides to be!
I used a magazine for reference, as I wanted to fit my road trip essentials in this bag! I also decided the kitties would be the inside fabric, so I put them on the inside, with the back of both fabric designs touching.
Then I stopped taking photos and sewed everything around their edges, back to back, before proceeding to sew together the back section. I sewed it inside out, so any mistakes or raw edges would end up inside the bag.
