Subject: Easy 1-Yard Tote

Make this for a gift bag to have on hand for any occasion. Make several ahead for various holidays.

Anyone who sews has accumulated some sale fabrics that are still looking for a project. I just found several in my stash and decided to make them up into totes that can be used as gift bags - or just folded and tied by themselves as a small gift. Something to tuck into a suitcase for travel needs, or just continue using as a gift bag. Better than buying a paper bag that gets tossed.

As I was searching through the many tote patterns, I remembered making this one. It took some additional searches to find it, but it's still available. So I thought I would share it.

The picture in the tutorial looks like a second fabric was used for the lining, but it's just 2 different areas of the fabric printing. The selvages ae trimmed off and a strip is cut to make the handles. The remaining piece is folded and stitched around, LEAVING AN OPENING TO TURN.

Thanks for the link! I haven't done any sewing yet this year but need to get back into it. This looks easy so may be a project to get me started. I want to finish up quilts. Have the quilt tops done but need to get them sandwiched, basted, quilted and add the bindings. Sure dislike the sandwich step!
