Pattern Description:

Maggie's own design, this 19 page tutorial is an advanced level upcycling coffee bag tote construction tutorial, The finished size is about 16" wide 13" tall sides and 5" deep but is adjustable. There are two handles, which are fabric straps. The inside layer is the silver espresso bags from Starbucks and the outside layer is bags from many different roasts of Starbucks coffees selected and designed to appeal to the artful eye. Use any coffee bag or other bags made from same type of foil-plastic laminated material, or you can use textiles in cotton or other materials.
The difference between coffee bags and fabric is that the coffee bags do not ravel and no turning for seams with the coffee bag material, so adjustments would need to be made if substituting fabric for coffee bags.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • about 16" x 14" x 5" adjustable pattern

Materials:

  • About 25 to 30 colorful coffee bags 12 oz to 16oz 2 to 3 large silver coffee bags or other material for lining Thread to match or contrast with the feed bag of your choice
  • Sewing Machine with zigzag stitch

You Will Also Need:

  • I use quilting thread that is 100% mercerized cotton) Red Twill Tape that is 100% cotton and is 1" wide for the handles OPTIONAL CLOSURE**Velcro, sew on or sticky back type, your preference TIPS TO REMEMBER: when finger pressing to crease plastic-foil laminate material, a plastic gift card is a handy tool for creasing the material and saves your fingernails. And don't forget your own custom label to sew in to the custom made item.

I enjoy giving a new life to items that have outlived their usefulness; such as feedbags and coffee bags upcycled into totes; make broom handles into looms then weave rags into rugs? Follow Maggie's blog at http://maggiescornerdotorg.wordpress.com/
