Having a tote bag is a must-have in every crafter's life. Heck, even if you weren't a crafter you should still have a tote on-hand. My newest obsession is the Heavy-duty Cotton Tote from Canvas ETC.
This heavy-duty cotton tote is made of 100% heavyweight cotton duck canvas. What is duck canvas you ask? It's a strong, heavy fabric available in a variety of weights and qualities, in a plain weave or basket weave fabric. The base fabric of this tote is a special weave #4 cotton duck, which is very durable. It is fabulous water repellent and is incredibly strong; the canvas is so sturdy that the tote stands on its own.
A tote like this is also known as a boat tote or coal bag because coal miners used to use it to remove debris and stones. Imagine how many craft supplies you can store in this tote! It measures 25 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches allowing you to pile in as many tools, supplies, yarn, paint or whatever your craft of choice is.
If you don't like the plain look to the tote you can easily decorate it any way you'd like. Use foils to give it a shiny look, scribble on some fabric paint (tiny hand prints would be adorable), embroider your name, slap on a label or do as you wish.
What's great about this tote is that it can be used for just about anything. Have it hold your skeins of yarn, keep your scraps of fabric tucked in, take it camping, take it to the beach, or you can use it to hold your art supplies or crafting tools. The possibilities are endless for what you can use this tote for!
