"Need a roomy tote for shopping or running errands? This handy market tote folds flat until you need it. The tote is so simple to make. It is made from three cloth dinner napkins- but any square of fabric will do- Try bandanas, pre-cuts or cut your own squares. Napkins or bandanas are great because they are pre-hemmed. Whatever you choose there is a color of Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP All Purpose thread to match."

Materials List

  • Three fabric dinner napkins
  • Coats & Clark Dual Duty All Purpose THread

Instructions

  1. Fold each napkin once diagonally from corner to corner.

  2. . Lay one napkin with the fold horizontally and the other two adjacent to the first with their folds vertically.

  3. . Pin together the adjacent napkin edges, going around the lower corners. Sew the seams, backstitching at the beginning and end of the seams, and press open. Note: Since the napkins are pre-hemmed, the sides may not be exactly the same length. If that’s the case, put a small pleat at the corner(s) of the longer edge.

  4. . Pin together the adjacent napkin edges, going around the lower corners. Sew the seams, backstitching at the beginning and end of the seams, and press open. Note: Since the napkins are pre-hemmed, the sides may not be exactly the same length. If that’s the case, put a small pleat at the corner(s) of the longer edge.

  5. Tie a small knot at the upper tie ends to join them. If you prefer a different finish, turn under each upper napkin point and insert a loop of rope cord through the openings, or lap the napkin points and sew together flat.
