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!
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.
Ready to make one? Here’s your step by step tutorial:
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.

Hey there! Have you heard the great news? Cricut now has FUSIBLE FABRIC! What is fusible fabric? Well it’s cotton fabric that already has a fusible product on the back so that with the use of an iron or the Cricut EasyPress you can make your very own fabric applique projects!
I wanted to make a little Cricut care package for a friend, so I cut out a Cricut “C” with my Cricut Maker and applied it with the EasyPress. It was so easy and so fast to make this adorable miniature tote bag!
Hint… you can find this Cricut Logo in the Cricut Library.. just search “Cricut”.
There are tons of varieties of colors. Each roll of Fusible Fabric comes with four different designs. Here are some of the choices available:

Hello there! It’s finally starting to look like Summer here in Indiana and that means beach time and lots of running around. I can always use an XL tote to keep me organized from one place to the next. I created this fun bag from a beach towel!
You can’t even believe how easy it is! I made this in under 30 minutes and you can too! This is the perfect beginner sewing project. ( How cute is this “Tropic like it’s Hot” SVG from LoveSVG?)
The best part is, it’s so easy to throw in the laundry with your other towels, it’s easy to personalize (make one for each of the kiddos with their own name), it’s is so big you can use it for the beach, a diaper bag, sleepovers, you name it – I’m pretty sure it’s going to fit! If you want it a little smaller, it’s really easy to downsize, simply cut your pieces smaller.
I personalized my bag with the Cricut EasyPress. I used the cotton settings and made sure to press from both the inside and outside of the bag. I used Glitter Iron On and Regular Cricut Lite Iron On. (Hint: use code LORRIE and save 10% and get free shipping on Iron On and other Cricut Accessories). I used pretty towels from Walmart, but any beach towel would work. Are you ready for the step by step tutorial?
Have you heard? There are new Cricut Iron On Designs at Joanns!
These are fun new premade designs. No need to get out your Criut or your Silhouette. All you need is the Design and the Cricut Easy Press (or you can use your home iron), a t-shirt and boom! You’ve got a handmade gift!
They have tons of designs. I took a photo at my local Joanns yesterday.
So easy! I used one on a tote bag, a mouse pad and a tshirt. You can even add them to a canvas. Great to have on hand for those last minute gifts.
