Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew straight lines and curves

Pattern Description:

I think these rope handled totes are my favorite bags I've ever made. They aren't huge. They are only about 10'' tall and 16'' wide but they hold a LOT of stuff.

And to top it off they are pretty! Seriously. This could be your new purse, gym bag, diaper bag, whatever you need.

The grommets I used came from the home decor section at Joanns. The first time you purchase grommets you'll need to get the package that includes the tools (on the left). After that you can buy packages with grommets only. The tools only cost a couple dollars extra. These grommets are easy to install. Don't even think twice about them.
