How To: Diy Cute Tote Bag


vlcsnap-2015-06-22-07h34m34s226hi guys,


its been so long, today I’m going to show you how i made this cute tote bag. The materials is

-Fabrics ( your choice) I use cotton fabric
-Glue Gun
-and don’t forget Sewing machine, if you don’t have it you can do hand sew.



The measurement for bag is 13 inches wide and 15 inches long. You can make a pattern first before cute it. before i cut I will fold the fabric to 2 .





now measure 2 inches for the edges of 13 inches wide and make a mark the fold it according to where you make a mark then sew.This where we going to sew the strap.




I use zigzag style using sewing machine


















Now the strap. the measurement is 10 inches long and 4 inches wide .This measurement for fabric that require you to fold it into 2 then you can cut .


Then you need to fold it like below picture . first, fold it into 2 then make a mark in the middle , then fold it once again according to middle mark. I always like to iron the fabric first before the sewing stage as it will be more easier for me to sew. Then sew every edges of the strap























Now you need to sew the strap on the bag



Then sew the bag

Once you done the bag, lets start with the flowers. cut the fabric , the measurement depends on how big the flower like. I use 10 inches long and 4 inches wide  as same as strap patter but when i cut the fabric I will not fold it to 2.


once you done cutting , fold it to 2 like below picture then hand sew the combine edges.
