Our big beach bag is all cotton so it breathes well and dries in a snap. Rope handles add a nautical touch and a ring of grommets makes it easy to open wide so you can load up plenty of towels and other important beach gear.
Making a wonderful bag for yourself or as a gift is a great sense of accomplishment. In this tutorial, we focus on creating a cool tote that’s very easy, but also cute and classic. Choose between two different strap styles.
Definitely a Sewing Survival Skill! With the right presser feet and accessories, an understanding of seam grading, and the patience to go slowly and carefully, you can sew like a pro through thick and thin.
It’s a utilitarian, get-down-to-business style that works well for women, men, even kids. You’ll love the tough riveted canvas, zippered pocket, and a cool slide buckle belt that cinches in place at waist or hip level.
Got something to say? Make a messenger bag with a real message! We used iron-on letters to create our FACT-FICTION phrase. Button flap pockets and a cool closure are just the start of the hardworking, everyman/woman style.
Crisp white + pops of color: that’s the plan for Spring. This versatile tote opens wide (full 6” depth) or cinches down to a handy tapered top. The two-part lining pulls up to form a clever drawstring cover, protecting the contents inside.
Divide and conquer to contain the chaos! We created one of our famous fabric baskets, then added some organizing extras: inner and outer pockets, double carry handles, and a removable center divider. Great for car trips!
With a generously sized, round bucket tote, you can keep all your tools of the trade together so they’re handy to take from room to room or out and about. For extra toughness, we suggest canvas on the exterior as well as the lining.
Special accents are the perfect touch for a professional bag finish. This terrific tote has rivets securing the straps, jean buttons on the side pockets, cool metal grommets, western style pocket flaps, and twin needle topstitching.
Decorative stitching against a neutral canvas gives this slouchy bucket bag a great hipster style. We also incorporated long, soft tassels at the sides and front made from the belted cording. We include all the steps.
