Make your own tote bag to carry all your summertime essentials. The Fabric Scraps Tote Bag is super easy to make and can be customized to your tastes. You need three different types of fabric, lining, interfacing, and access to a sewing machine.

This DIY tote bag measures 15 inches wide and 12 inches tall. It has plenty of room for your wallet, keys, sunglasses, book, sunscreen, and whatever else you want to pack for a day at the beach. Easy sewing patterns like this also make cute gifts for your friends and family for Christmas or birthdays.

I have a friend that makes these for everyone she knows. I love them because they are so much more durable that plastic shopping bags. They look a lot nicer too. I use mine as a project bag for my knitting and crochet work, but it is also a great bag to take to the library.

This is such a cute idea and I'm,I've that the handles are incorporated as part of the entire overall,pattern for a sleek and easy to grab and go look. You could use one entire piece of fabric or even piece together several,strips of fabric to combine together to make up the entire size. Adapt the oattern to make larger or smaller as needed. These would make lovely little gifts too! Super pattern!

I like how this tote looks. The design is simple yet beautiful. I like the idea of it being reversible as well. I look forward to raiding my fabric stash and make several of these. Wouldn't a smaller size one make for a great bag to carry your lunch to work everyday?
