A 16 page tutorial full of very detailed pictures and instructions showing how to make the tote shown, including how to process the feed bags and the coffee bags used for the lining. Pictures in this tutorial are of the actual making of the tote by Maggie. The multiple pictures and text on each page explains in great detail how to make this useful durable tote.
Using Maggie's own designs for totes, we make many different types of feed bag totes. This one featured in this pattern is double layered bags all sides and bottom. There are five panels that consists of front, back, sides, and bottom panels. Tote is approximately 14" wide 14" tall sides and 5" deep, can vary up to 18" x 14" x 6" depending on size of bag used. Handles are made of recycled fabric core covered with feed bag and are approximately 1" wide and 26" long. The inside layer is the silver espresso bags from Starbucks and the outside layer is feed bag and was a custom order for a customer in Milton Florida.
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/
