DIY Tote Bags Ideas

Posted by  ·  April 19, 2015  ·  Last Updated: February 19, 2018

I love making bags! You can use them for everything and you can never have enough (maybe that is just me). Here are some cute patterns of DIY tote bags I came across this week on Made by You Monday! Whip them up for a easy sewing project and even a useful gift!  I love easy sewing projects! For more ideas, try my pleated pouch tutorial. For Teacher Appreciation consider this clever Tote-ally Awesome Teacher Gift, the tag would work with any of these projects!
