This basic sewing project tutorial is a 10 page tutorial that has many pictures with text instructions. The tutorial also includes detailed processing instructions for the recycled feed 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. This big beach tote is about 18" x 18" x 26" finished dimensions. It is made from plastic woven feed bags. Outside it makes a great carryall for going to the beach, or by the pool to toss all the kids or pets wet toys into. It can also be used for raked up leaves to carry to the compost pile. A couple years ago I donated two for our county Cooperative Extension children's demonstration garden to grow potatoes in. Keep in mind if left in direct sunlight for long periods the graphic film will delaminate from woven inside layer of feed bag. Inside uses are for storage of Christmas decorations in the attic, or storage of bed quilts; hang tote from a hook by the handle or stack on top of one another in a closet. You can contact me with questions, and custom pattern orders are welcomed, BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing skills on basic sewing machine SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 18" x 18" x 26"

Recommended with this pattern

  • Three 50 pound feed bags

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
