No Crafter Here!!! Part Two….

Let’s see now, where did I leave off?

Aha, I need the handles, the bottom and basically to make the bag. I did a lot of searching on blogs for a grocery tote bag. Many tutorials came up, many I read, advice I asked,
What in the world are they talking about!!!!

So, I just used some common sense and plowed through it:

First handles, do not ask I have no idea, and I then put the front and back of the tote right sides together and sewed around three edges…… here they are….

Ok turn inside out, hmmm really big bag!!

Next I attach the handles. I measured from each side so they would be even when held.

Sew the handles on, I know !!! Not the best but they were secure!!

TaDa, My first tote!!!

There are so many things I would do different. I do however like it for my first bag and the size will be perfect for the table-topper.
