The pictures included in this tutorial are of feed bags, but the style and size could be made from grain bags, burlap, cotton duck, home dcor, or just about any type of material that you want to recycle. This tote is lined with the same feedbag material as the outer layer, but you could use any type of material for the lining. You could also recycling old clothes as a great way to utilize those favorite outfits. This style of tote is my original 5-panel tote that you may of seen in my Etsy or Craftsy shops, on my Flickr page or perhaps my blog posts or Facebook page. My older tutorials for the 5-panel tote show a different method of accomplishing the lining. This tutorial demonstrates my new improved method for doing the lining and is how I now construct the totes that I make for customers.

I enjoy learning and sharing knowledge about handcrafting and sustainable living. I up-cycle materials to promote awareness for recycling . This is my hobby and all proceeds go to pay costs for my recycling and education efforts, plus for foster care and adoption of pets in need of help. Join me or start your own upcycle group in your town to recycle, reuse, re-purpose, and educate others. I also have tutorials showing how to salvage material such as coffee bags, feed bags, then layout, and sew the material into useful items such as carryall shopping market totes and handbags. #sewing #recycle #upcycle #craftsy #totes #shopping #gifts #weavinglooms #fiberarts #tutorials #classes
