Quick and Easy Tote

A tote makes a quick homemade present for anyone!

Materials

  • two identical rectangles of fabric
  • needle and thread or sewing machine
  • embroidery thread or fabric pens
  • Ad
  • ribbon for handles

Instructions

  1. Embroider or write your slogan or picture onto one of the rectangles of fabric, roughly in the centre.
  2. Turn over the top of both rectangles and sew to make a hem.
  3. Sew on two pieces of ribbon to the top for handles.
  4. Place the two rectangles right sides together and sew the remaining three sides.
  5. Voila!

Great Idea and it works really well with lots less effort if you can find inexpensive fabric or mesh place mats to make them with.All you need is two matching mats to make one great tote. Think school book bag,childs car toys bag, scrapbookers helper bag or Beach bag!!

This is a cute idea. Thanks for sharing. It could also be used as a gift gag. Two gifts in one!
