For the summer months I posted on Mondays and Thursdays, I'm too busy to do that now, so I'm just going to be posting on Mondays. Thank you everyone for your support!

Well actually its more of mini tote, or as I like to call it:
The FUN Sized Tote
This is actually the first tote bag I've ever made. I think it turned out pretty good. What about you?
AND I added a cute easy flower to the bottom (a tutorial for it will be coming next Monday)
I also boxed out the bottom, so it will hold more.... Perfection.
2 pieces of fabric cut 9x12"
2 pieces of fabric cut 4x12"
2 rectangles measuring 3.5x13"
2 rectangles measuring 13x 11"
Piece together fabrics 1 and 2: pin right sides together and sew across the top to create square 1 and square 2.
Step 2: Pin square 1 and square 2 right sides together and sew three of the sides, leaving the top open.
Step 3: Take the big rectangles of fabric 3 and sew them right sides together just like in step 2.
Step 4: Sew your handles. Take the small rectangles of fabric 3 and sew it right sides together into a tube.
Step 5: Box the edges, I like to use this tutorial:
Step 6: Pin everything together. Put the liner inside the outside right sides together with the straps inside. Make sure to leave an opening.
Step 7: Flip the tote inside out and sew around the whole top of the bag. You can also add a flower or bow to the bottom of the bag.
