It seems like you can never have enough bags – we use them for groceries, toys, books, snacks, whatever! And a nice fabric tote bag is a simple sewing project to display your favorite fun prints.
I made these bags for the boys to go with their superhero costumes.
- 20″ long x 34″ wide piece of fabric
- Ribbon for strap (21″ long x 3.5″ wide)
I folded the fabric in half lengthwise, with wrong sides together, and sewed down the length to make a tube. I flipped the tube so that the right sides were together and then sewed another seam to create a neat hidden French seam.
Next, I sewed the bottom of the bag closed.
At each bottom corner, I folded the fabric and sewed across the corner to make a flat bottom for the bag:
To attach the handle, I ironed a hem at the top and tucked the ribbon for the strap under the hem.
Then, I sewed down the top hem, with extra stitching around the handles.
And here are the finished bags! Now, Batman and Superman can be stylish and practical!
