We found the tutorial for these awesome School Notebook Sewn Canvas Tote Bags comes on Say Yes to Hoboken‘s pretty blog. (Frankly I am annoyed with myself for not coming up with this clever idea). We made a couple up for Ada’s teachers as holiday gifts. They are simple to complete, cute and functional – pretty much a perfect DIY. These would also make great Valentine gifts with a child’s drawing of a little heart, XOXO, or love note written in fabric marker between the stitched lines.
Do you make the tote bag too or start with one from the store?
I followed Say Yes to Hoboken’s Instructions, and got my totes here:
They were under $5 each with shipping.
How did you sew on just one side of the fabric? Did you unpick the side seam?
I spread the bag open and sewed up to seams, back stitching to keep from unravelling.
