I had listed making tote bags on my FAL Q4 list as I had bought the fabric and wanted to get them sent off for the Dress A Girl Around the World Christmas distribution. Not long after starting to cut the fabric I found I already had a lot cut out. So 26 tote bags done and sent off. I'm still aiming to get the rest finished soon.
I picked up this elephant fabric for next to nothing ( gotta love this time of year at Spotlight!) I added different coloured handles & some bias binding trim to brighten them up & make them easier to tell apart. I'm pleased with the way they turned out.
The tote bags are used for the education packs - they get filled with books and pencils and are handed out with the clothes. I love projects that support education so I try and sew them regularly.
There are two easy tote bag patterns that I use for these:
20 minute library bag
My Little Shopper Tote
