Tote bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How it turned out, by adding some batting and interlining to the silk fabric then putting a strong cardboard base (covered with lining fabric) it stands beautifully. I decided to make a tie that I could add a loose bow but can be removed too. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Bag making is fun and simple even for inexperienced sewers. I used a walking foot throughout the whole process

What you will need

  • Taiwan silk
  • wool batting
  • osnuburg fabric
  • matching threads
