Pattern Description:

The tutorial is in a pdf format with many pictures of actual making of the tote pictured and is 22 pages. This is a 2nd Edition and has many added features such as alternate handle and sewn on velcro and reversible option.

Using Maggie's own designs for totes, we make many different types of grain bag totes. Most of the bags, of this style, finished size is approximately 9" to 10" tall, 32" wide when open and laid flat, and 10" diameter when assembled with bottles in it and Velcro fastener closed. I use various material for the handles. This handle is 52" long and attached with 6" sewn to opposing sides of the tote, leaving 40" side to side which makes for a 20" drop. This pattern is based on the tote pictured that was a custom order for a local brewery using their own bags.

ALSO this tote includes section for shorter handle, using twill strap 30" includes the 6" on each side for total of 12" leaving 18" side to side with a 9" drop.

ALSO this tutorial includes instruction to make it reversible and sewn on Velcro as well as the adhesive kind.

You Will Also Need:

  • Thread to match or contrast with the feed bag of your choice ( I use quilting thread that is 100% mercerized cotton) Jean material or other cotton material for handle core.
