"Tote Bag for Plastic Free July."
Seeing it is Plastic Free July I decided to make up a tote bag from scraps of fabric.
There was no pattern just cut and sewed until I had a big piece of fabric for the front and back. I did some stamping on the fabric as well.
A few machine embroidery designs were stitched onto it as well. I used up a tablecloth that came with a picnic set for the lining and sides of the bag. The inside has a piece of balsa wood instead of plastic to hold the shape, so shopping can sit on it.
This was a great project to use up bits and pieces and help the environment by not using single use plastic bags.
What are you doing for Plastic Free July?
