When you have made yourself one of these sturdy and stylish Reversible Box Tote we are sure you’ll be keen to make another and maybe even another.
The designer, Very Shannon, says it’s a super quick and easy sew that is suitable for a beginner sewer! There’s plenty of scope for you to customize your bag. If you want more pockets or ones with a zipper or velcro, then go ahead and add them on. If you want a quilted look, then skip the interfacing and add batting instead and quilt it to your outer bag fabric for a custom look. Or you could even color block your tote bag. There are so many options. That way you’ll be able to make lots and lots with some looking quite different.
When you have finished making yourself a Reversible Box Tote Bag it will measure approximately 8″ high (14″ high including the handle) by 17″ wide.
