 I put together a tutorial for the tote bag that I made for teacher’s gifts. It is really simple to make.


 Materials

19 ¾” X 29 ¾” Fabric for Lining
(2) 5” X 42” Fabric of Handles
(2) 5” X 42” Décor Bond for Handles
20” X 14” Fabric for Tote Bottom

Fuse Décor Bond to Wrong side of Handle Fabric


Fold Handle in Half Lengthwise and Press

 

Open Handle and Fold Long Side Toward Center and Press


Repeat on Opposite Side


Fold Handle in Half Lengthwise Again and Press


Topstitch ¼” Along Each Long Side of the Handle


Repeat Instructions for Other Handle

 Step Two - Sew Handles to Outer Bag


Make Mark on Canvas 3” from Each Side of Center for Handle Placement


Make Mark 9 ½” Down from Top of Canvas
This is the Placement for the Handles  Pin Handles in Place


Starting at the Bottom, Sew Handles to the Canvas by Topstitching Over Previous Topstitching


Stop Stitching 1 ½” from Top of Outer Bag and Turn
Continue Stitching Across Top and Down Opposite Side of Handle Repeat for Remaining Handles

Turn Long Side of Bag Bottom Fabric up ½” and Press

 Step Four – Assemble Outer Bag and Lining  


Sew ½” Seam Along Each Side of the Bag, Leaving Top Open
Repeat for Lining, Leaving Small Opening on One Side for Turning

Step Five – Make Boxed Corners 


Clip Open With-in Seam Allowance on Each End of Bag and Lining


Bring Bag Bottom and Bag Side Right Sides Together to Form the Boxed Corner Align Seam Allowance and Bottom Center of the Bag, Press


Measure Down Center Seam 3” from Point and Draw a Line


Sew Along the Line, Backstitching at Each End


Trim Fabric ¼” from Seam Line Repeat Previous Steps for Remaining Side and for Lining

Step Six – Assemble Outer Bag and Lining Together
