I made both versions of this bag with Cricut Designer Fabric. They have an amazing bundle right now that will really add to your fabric stash. Both of the totes above were made from the fabric bundle. They are currently phasing out fabric, so once this bundle is gone, it’s gone for good. It’s a $129.90 value, on sale for only $39.99. Psst… if you’re a Cricut Access Member you’ll save 10% off that price and use my code MAKERS10 and you will save ANOTHER 10%. That is a whole lot of fabric at a very affordable price.
This black and metallic rose gold is really striking in person. Even if you don’t use a Cricut, this fabric is a great deal. I didn’t use the Cricut for this project, but I still used the fabric.
Are you ready to make your own canvas and leather tote bag? I’ve got you covered with a video that includes step by step instructions!
Hey there! I wanted to pop on here really quickly and share with you a fast and easy project using more of the paint drop cloth that I used in the previous RAE DUNN INSPIRED PILLOW COVER Tutorial and also in the SHABBY FABRIC BASKET Tutorial. (Click to visit those block posts).
This $4 drop cloth is providing me with fabric for tons of projects! This zip pouch is perfect for personalization (think EasyPress Iron On).
If you’re a Cricut user I even have a Design Space pattern for you. You can get that HERE.
I am so happy about this Shabby Fabric Basket. This project came together so quickly and so easily and even better, so inexpensively!
You may remember my original fabric basket from a placemat video. This basket is a DIY inspired version of that one and it’s almost just as easy to make. Fabric baskets are so popular. You can use them for organization, a flower pot cover, as a decorative element or a whole plethora of other uses.
I made this one for my friend, Teri, who is a leopard loving pink girl. It is fun and lively, much like she is.
I also toyed with the idea of adding Rae Dunn inspired words to a bag. What do you think?
Change the fabric and you’ve got an Easter Basket, a Mother’s Day Basket, a gift basket, and more.
As always, I’ve got a step by step tutorial for you. You can find it below.
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.

If you have followed me for very long, you know that I love to use things (like placemats) in ways that you might not think about. I have long been a user of canvas drop cloths! I’ve made tote bags, pouches, wall hangings and so much more from them. They are super inexpensive and 1 drop cloth is enough for dozens of projects! (Stay tuned for more in the near future!
Don’t mind Brinkley’s “thrilled face”. No animals were hurt or abused during the filiming of this video. After 30 minutes of trying to get her to pose for a photo, unsuccessfully, I might add, she curled up in her bed and practically begged me to try again! Dogs, gotta love them.
Today, I combined my love of beginner friendly sewing projects, the drop cloth and my love for all things Cricut Maker and Cricut EasyPress to create this super fun and trendy Rae Dunn Inspired Pillow Cover.
Hello there and thanks for stopping by! I was so happy when I stopped by my local quilt shop and found this beautiful cork fabric! It’s filled with beautiful gold flecks and a dreamy warm natural color. I knew I had to make a few zipper pouches with this lucky find!
I mean, how can you not want to make something fabulous?!? This is a really easy pattern to follow and you can adjust it to any size you like by simply adjusting the beginning sizes.
I added these cool cork zipper tabs to the ends of the zipper for an extra special finishing touch. Yes, I made the zipper pull as well. I drew my logo and then digitized it.
The inside is fully lined and has a pocket.
So, are you ready for the step by step tutorial and pattern?
A while ago, I posted a miniature tote bag I made for someone for Christmas. I have been asked over and over to post the directions for this mini tote. Today, I made the tutorial and just to change it up a little I made 3 different sizes.
and used 3 different patterns
I wanted to show how versatile a simple basic tote bag pattern can be. Simply change the size, add a pocket, add a keychain, a bow or some pompoms and it looks like a totally different project.
I used the Cricut Maker to cut my fabric, but you can absolutely cut it by hand. I give you the step by step instructions as well as all of the measurements in the video tutorial below.
