The Foldover Tote

Make yourself a practical bag for everyday use or shopping as well!
This time I would like to show you a tutorial of a very necessary stuff for all women, especially moms. Even though I’m not a mum I know that finding a good-quality, and in the same time fitting bag, can be a miracle sometimes. Getting a tote which is not only practical but also pretty is even harder. In this situation there is only a one way out...sewing a suitable bag yourself.

I found this great tutorial on “Make It Handmade” website, running by Palak. Cool website, very user friendly, with a huge amount of tutorials, projects and patterns. The author very clearly explains how to sew this kind of bag. In addition she shows three ways of using it. It’s amazing how easy sewing my be, and what an awesome stuff you can make at home without professional tools!
