This is a fun and easy project that can be dressed up or kept simple. We made a ton of these, unlined, with simple drawstrings for a non-profit project donating school supplies to impoverished areas, and putting them in this simple drawstring tote for them to carry. We used fabric scraps, heavier cottons, brightly colored and was a wonderful way to help others via sewing! Thanks for sharing!

This is a cute and simple tote bag for a first project for my niece! She's 12 and likes to do arts and crafts, and has wanted to sew something. She wanted to sew some tiny doll clothes, but that stuff is so fussy. I don't think it's for a beginner just because it's small! Try putting snaps on a 3 inch piece of fabric! So this tote will be perfect for her first project!
