You will love this easy tote bag pattern. If you don’t know how to sew a bag, this is a good place to start! This tote bag pattern is easy and you’ll love how it turns out! It’s got one fabric on the top, another on the bottom and I did a third inside. So you can customize it for the person you are making it for!


  • Fabric-Canvas or Duck. I used 3 fabrics-one for the top, one for the bottom and one for the inside. You need about 1/3 yard of your bottom fabric and about 1/2 yard each of the top and inner fabrics
  • Optional-fusible fleece interfacing to line the straps. You will only need about 1/4 yard for this.
