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.

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
