One of my first tutorials was for a tote. They’re incredibly useful in so many everyday activities! They also make great gifts and can be used in place of a disposable gift bag. And, some of the simpler patterns are great for a beginner. Here are some of my favorites but there are tons of tote tutorials out there!
Just like it’s name implies, The Market Tote from Bijou Lovely is a sturdy bag great for groceries or the farmer’s market.
The Knot Tote at Me Sew Crazy is a fast and cute project to whip up.
This Mini Market Tote from Chubby Hobby has some nice extra details on the handle and in the bottom corners.
Gardening season may be wrapping up this year, but get started on this great Garden Tote featured on Sew Mama Sew for next year!
And at think liz. is this Diana Hobo with pretty pleat details.
