Say no to Plastic - Make this Tote Bag

Say no to plastic. Create this stylish but easy to make shopping bag.

In summary the requirements are:

  • 60 cm fabric for outside of bag and handles
  • 50 cm fabric for bag lining
  • 25 cm fabric for handle - if you want a contrasting fabric
  • 50 cm wadding and backing if you want to quilt the bag

Other tools you will need

Cutting mat.
Rotary cutter.
Long ruler for use with a rotary cutter.
Neutral coloured thread for sewing with - I like the 
Aurifil ne50 (this is a lovely fine 100% cotton thread, and I usually use a grey).
General sewing supplies (thread snips, unpicker, pins, iron).

Before starting please note  all seams are joined with a  ½” seam (unless otherwise indicated)
Also it is a good idea to read through all the instructions before starting.
