Free step by step sewing pattern and tutorial from the Inspired Wren for how to make this sturdy and hard-wearing lined canvas tote bag. We love this bag because of the way it’s constructed with the handles securely held within the base and sides of the bag, not just sewn into the top.
Because the Handles wrap to the bottom this is a tough tote that can withstand a lot of weight. It also maintains its structure nicely (and can take a lot of abuse) thanks to the indoor/outdoor fabric and duck-cloth. There are so many fabulous fabric options in the decor fabrics department. And remember it doesn’t require a lot of fabric, so don’t forget to also check the remnant bin at your local fabric store.
I’ve been using mine for months when I go to the store and also as a carryall for when I need to cart a lot of stuff with me and it’s help up just great! I even just toss it in the wash every couple of weeks and it comes up like new. Make one!
