Eco Totes

Eco Bags To Die For...
Eco Bags To Die For... by girlio on

Lately, I've become reacquainted with several things I love to do: shopping and sewing. Though sewing doesn't come easily to me, shopping does. Since Spring has arrived, I have been looking forward to all the fresh produce that will be available at the Farmer's Market. The shopping totes pictured above are so cute. I decided to abstain from buying a bag and make my own since I had a ton of ripstop fabric (no pics at this time since my sewing skills need some serious practice). This helpful and inspiring video about making your own bag can be found here:

I have made several and plan to make some more for friends and family. Once you get the hang of making the simple tote in the video, you can easily start to customize your own bag to your preferences.
