Last week I talked about making a tote for Etame following this quick (20 min) tutorial. Well, it was quick! I didn't really need the tutorial for the simplicity of it, but it still was nice to have the dimensions all figured out for me.
I used fabric that I had bought at my favorite local fabric shop, A Fabric Place (truly, that's the name). I had planned to make a skirt with it but it is more of a canvas material so it works better for a tote anyhow. The handles I used are actually ties that I kept from a slipcover we had in our old house. It was nice because it was already hemmed. Easy.
And of course I sewed "her label" in there because I have like 500 of them. That was the minimum order when I bought them.
Now she has a new spring tote bag that will fit all her preschool art and papers!
