Two-Hour Tote Bag
As the song says, "Summer's here, and the time is right" (for hitting the beach!) And what better beach accessory than a roomy tote that can hold a book, towel, sunscreen and sunglasses? Another song says, "It's too darned hot!" (to spend too much time in the sewing room), so here's an easy project that you can make in less than two hours, start to finish!
What you'll need:
1/2 yard of denim or canvas (60 inches wide)
2 7/8 yards of 1-inch-wide nylon or cotton webbing
Thread to match
1. Cut it out!
Okay, it's time to make an easy tote! To start, cut two rectangles, 19 inches wide by 15 1/2 inches high from your denim or canvas fabric. These will be the front and back of your bag. Next, cut one square 11 inches wide by 11 inches high. This will be your outside pocket.
