Lined Tote Bag with outside pockets - FREE sewing video tutorial

Learn how to sew a beautiful lined tote bag with outer pockets on both the front and back with this outstanding FREE video tutorial.

You can use up to five different fabrics on this Tote Bag if you really want it to stand out. And to really make the colors stand out the tutorial shows you how to add piping at the top edges.

To give the Tote Bag some structure you should add a double-sided fusible stabilizer or you can use a single sided fusible stabilizer if you prefer.

Materials needed to make the Tote Bag

This excellent Tote Bag video tutorial is courtesy of the very talented Whitney Sews. No pattern is needed, simply cut your fabrics according to the directions in the video.
