Make Your Own Tote Bag

Making a tote bag is a great DIY Spring or Summer craft or project. I always have several tote bags in the trunk of my car for groceries or other purchases. No more plastic bags for me!  I found these four cute creative ideas to share. The crocheted tote made out of plastic bags is genius! Click on the links for a full tutorial.

A grocery bag tote from Design Sponge. This tote fits any style, as you can personalize it by embellishing it with buttons, brooches, and fabric scraps.

A beach tote from Country Living. Perfect for Summer, this tote is embellished with seashells. Just stitch each shell using upholstery thread in a design of your liking.

Recycle plastic bags and make this tote from Marlo’s Crochet Corner.  Using colorful plastic grocery bags and an M hook, crochet this fabulous eco-friendly tote.

A giant flower tote from Tatertots and Jello. This is an old tote from Walmart that was updated with cute ruffled fabric flowers.

 

Check out these other creative ways to recycle:
