Pattern Description:

These tutorial directions will show how to make finished tote about 14" tall, 18" wide, and 6" deep. 16 page tutorial

The tutorial is in a pdf format with many pictures of actual making of the tote pictured, including the procedure to process the feedbags and coffee bags. 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 separate panels making up this tote. There is front, back, sides, and bottom panels. The Tote is approximately 18" wide 14" tall sides and 6" deep. Handles are made of cotton inner core 1" wide and 26" long covered by grain bag 3" x 26" and the inside layer is the silver espresso bags from Starbucks and the outside layer is a plastic woven grain bag; the Alfalfa Cube grain bag that I received from a local horse farm.
