This bag is super easy to make. I am always looking for a bag to put my knitting and crocheting projects in and this will be perfect. I can make some as gifts as well. Also you can make them to use for shoes and other things when you travel. So many uses! Thank you.

This has to be the fastest sewing project of all time plus it is a really pretty bag too! The pattern is wonderfully easy to follow and there are detailed photos for every step so it really is impossible to go wrong. I made 2 this afternoon in under 30 minutes, including fabric selection. Quick AND easy? What could be better!

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!
