Wicker picnic baskets are cute, but they also can be awkward to carry and hard to store. For your next picnic outing take along this Collapsible Picnic Basket instead. This tutorial will show you how to make a tote bag that’s perfect for carting around on all of your adventures. Collapsible bags are so convenient because they can easily be tucked away at home or stored in your car. You can make this DIY tote bag out of canvas, denim, or oil cloth. Add a vintage graphic on the front to personalize this cute and practical picnic tote.
