Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today, I am excited to bring you this super handy “How to Make a Jumbo Tote Bag “tutorial.
My daughter asked me to make something for the grandkids that they could take their “stuff” to day care in. It needed to be large enough to hold their nap blanket and pillow, an extra set of cloths and all of the other essentials, but it also needed to be soft a flexible enough they could fold it up and store it in their cube at daycare.
I came up with this pattern. I used outdoor fabric for durability and fusible fleece to give them a bit of structure, but still soft and foldable.
I am in love with how they turned out.
By simply adjusting the size of the fabrics, you can make a tote for almost any occasion using this design. It’s the perfect beginner sewing friendly project.
