If you're looking for a fun and unique sewing pattern, then this project for the Indigo Embroidered Tote Bag is for you! The easy sewing pattern is a creative way to customize pre-made bags into items that match your personality and wardrobe.

From the blogger: "Update a plain tote bag with indigo dye and an embroidered patch! There are lots of fun variations you could create with other types of natural dyes and other embroidery patterns. I love to keep an embroidery project ready to go so I can stitch a little when I have a few minutes of downtime. This is a quick and easy project to use some small embroidered pieces, and it makes a pretty gift for your friends!"

An indigo dyed tote bag in a traditional shibori pattern is really unique since no matter how carefully the fabric would be tied before the dye is applied, no two would come out the same. Although totes can be so utilitarian, this one stands out. The instructions on how to duplicate the tote are easy to follow.
