Sewing a Tote Bag can be fun! (And who couldn’t use another cute bag?) Here are 18 Free Tote Bag Patterns for you to sew today.
Some of these tote bags are perfect for beginners and a few of these would be a great sewing project for the sewist looking to add a few new skills to their “bag.”
The lil’ Missy and I headed out to run some errands yesterday, which included a very successful trip to Joann’s.
There were a few good coupons on the app, including a couple of 50% off one item coupons and a few others. I have a cute smocked dress in mind for the missy and a fabulous new DIY Tote Bag on the cutting table for me!
I’m always in need of roomy tote bags for trips to the pool and sleepovers at Nanas (and yes Nana, you will be hosting a sleepover very soon, lol.)
Free Tote Bag Patterns
As I was researching the latest tote bag trends, I came across a ton of great bag tutorials on the web.
Tote Bags come in so many shapes and sizes, from the smallest book bag all the way to the roomiest overnight bag. And the best part is that most tote-style bags are fairly easy to sew since they are mostly straight lines
If you love simple and roomy tote bags, you seriously don’t want to miss out on these 18 fabulous free tote bag patterns I’ve rounded up for you today.
And like I always say, no one can ever have too many tote bags in their possession!
Okay, I’ll admit it…I might be a little bit addicted to finding cute bags that coordinate with me and my day. Please tell me I’m not the only one…I have tote bags specifically for the library, the grocery store, my wine, and even for day trips in the car.
And while it might sound a little bit excessive to have that many, I promise you that they actually keep me organized. Plus, I feel a little better about myself every time I use a tote bag rather than using plastic bags that harm our Earth.
