Large Tote Bag - Pesonalized

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How pretty it looks - and the back matches so well to the front. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You don't always have to have a pattern in order to made a product! - I did not use a pattern for this one - I did it all myself.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabrics
  • black binding
  • magnetic snap closure

This particular bag was quite a fun challenge!! 4 of us in a group chose a project from Craftsy and I chose this bag. Had quite a time trying to stay focused with all the goings on, but I got finished first!! Irt's simply beautiful!! Thanks Craftsy.
Deena answered:
wow- I am honored...would love to see your project too.

This is so pretty and bright. I love it.
Deena answered:
thanks - I gave it to my neighbor as a gift. She is always doing such nice and charitable things for us.
flower queen asked:
Beautiful bag! Did you bind each of the colored pieces in the black binding? How did you join the pieces?
Deena answered:
I sewed them together then I sewed the binding along the seam line and then joined the rows with a black fabric sashing.
