When you imagine a duffle style tote, the picture in your mind probably conjures something made out of a heavy duty fabric in classic tones of tan or brown. We have a couple projects right here on S4H that match the traditional view. But for this stand-out-from-the-crowd barrel bag, we took a different path, using
Staying active, fit, and flexible is a top goal across all age groups. Consistency is key for building exercise habits and seeing results, but staying motivated can be tough, especially if you’ve been inactive for a period of time.

Color coming your way! Our dramatic duffle has a soft, round shape and an easy going, shoulder sling style. Boho patchwork and ribbons adorn the outside, and we haven’t forgotten to add plenty of handy pockets on the inside. The stunning fabric is the new Fluent collection by Anna Maria Horner for FreeSpirit Fabrics.  S4H

With a slim silhouette and two deep pockets, this pouch is a go-to accessory that can go-anywhere. We used waterproof canvas bound in fold-over elastic. It’s a beginner-friendly project, but one that can add to your sewing skills.

Wide wale corduroy is a top trend. Although it’s most often a choice in the garment category, we knew it would also make a gorgeous tote. We chose a solid ice white corduroy with bright cotton for the lining and striking webbing

Whimsical Tula Pink fabric and eye-popping Tula webbing is paired with a solid faux suede for the upper trim and the clever front flap that covers deep, double front pockets. The lightly quilted texture keeps it fashionably fabulous.

We love the vintage vibe of this great back-to-school, dual carry tote. Thicker fabric + topstitching detail work together to provide a perfect blend of softness and stability, and to show off the power and precision of Janome machines.

Who says functional can’t also be fabulous?! This generously-sized tote is perfect for everything from daily chores to weekend getaways. You’ll love the two carry options and the top inset zipper. Exclusively in our Etsy shop.

One bag done three ways! It’s fun to see how a basic bag can evolve. This is the third version of our Trio, featuring straight line quilting across the upper panels, plus an adjustable, detachable strap and zippered front pocket.

Our Bright Spot Tote series shows one bag project done 3 ways on three different machines. The basic big, bold design finishes at a generous 16” x 16” x 7” with clean lines and layered structure accented with precise topstitching.

Whether you’re traveling near or far, our handsome, go-everywhere tote is a wonderful addition to your packing plans. A subtle monogram is the finishing touch that really makes the project your own.

We paired a décor weight exterior with a standard weight cotton lining. Then we calmly meditated on the easiest instructions with the most stylish details. The result guarantees good karma for all who tote this tote to class.

These box totes are sewn up in 100% linen so they have a wonderfully soft feel. Each bag features three coordinating solid colors set against one another in big, bold blocks both inside and out.

For tiny treasures, holiday treats or gift cards, this clear-view trio is a “green gift wrap” solution for the holidays. Recipients can re-use them later for business cards, as a mini wallet or turn the Large pouch into a toiletry bag.

Perfect for holiday parties: an elegant cinched evening bag in a mini bucket shape. We used two of the most popular special occasion fabrics: velvet with a gorgeous drape and silk dupioni with its crisp, slightly textured finish.

Go Hands Free! We put a number of Janome specialty presser feet to work to handle thicker layers, piping application, and seam finishing. Using the right foot for the job always makes a project faster, easier + more professional.

The front of a bag is a bit like a blank slate. We started with a gorgeous metallic linen, then added a quilted windowpane grid, and finally, arranged twelve tone-on-tone yo-yos as the perfect dimensional accent.
