Tutorial: Kids Totes

11:54 AM

Back when the dino tails were in the Simple Quilts and Sewing magazine, they also had me design a trick or treat bag to go with them, and the instructions are available on their website.

Here's the direct link to instructions to make these cute, quick, totes.
Obviously you could use them any time, for library books, gifts, etc.

 I designed them to have contrasting lining and handles, which makes them reversible with an all solid alternative version.  The bottom has box pleats to give more room in the base as well.
 Anyway, we have a snowman to make this morning as it snowed 4 inches!
Have a good weekend.

  1. I made four of these totes for Halloween and embroidered the kiddo's names on them. Thanks so much for the inspiration and the pattern and instructions. They were the perfect size for trick o' treating.


Thank you for stopping by, we love to hear from you!
