How to make a tote bag

This step by step will walk you through the super easy process of making a tote bag. This particular variation is a pretty heavy duty one, so feel free to adjust a bit if you don't need one that will carry such a heavy load. You will need:
  • Sewing machine. The walking foot machine at any Techshop location is a great bet, but any machine will do.
  • Canvas or some similar woven fabric. Canvas is cheap and pretty tough so that was my choice. My bottom is made of waxed canvas to make it a bit water proof and extra rugged, but we will cross that bridge when we get to it. 
  • Webbing, enough to go up both sides, and make the handles at the very least. You can figure this by multiplying the height of your bag tas souvenir ultah anak by 4 and adding 2-4 ft depending on how big you want the handles and if you want to wrap the webbing all the way under the bag (extra reinforcement).
