Hello all! It’s Tori from One Eleven Studio here to teach you how to make a tote bag that’s roomy enough to pretty much fit whatever you need for your summer outings! For this project, I used a beautiful two-toned heavy weight Belgian Linen fabric that has an amazing texture and is soft to the touch. I wanted to create a tote bag tutorial that was super simple and relatively quick to make so let’s get started! Click here to read more »
These limited edition canvas totes were created and hand-screen printed for Britex fabrics by a local designer in foggy San Francisco. Our natural tote has our 60th anniversary logo on one side, and the iconic Britex logo on the other side. Want a great gift giving idea? Instead of a stocking, give something people can use, and stuff a beautiful Britex Fabrics canvas tote with meaningful goodies such as handmade, home-baked and locally crafted gifts. Size: a hunky 14” by 16”
Constance lives in the beauteous Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, and made a charming tote from fabric purchased from Britex Fabrics. We love the stunning over-sized butterfly printed linen, and the way she picked up the papillon wing color in the muted green of the straps and trim. This mid-weight home decorating linen is found on Britex Fabrics 2nd floor.
Nathalie from mais pourquoi tu brodes made this charming handbag from Britex Fabric and notions. The supply list for this classy tote includes black linen, brown silk, cord-wrapped teardrop trim, and sheer polka-dotted ribbon. This bag would be a perfect accessory for a simple black linen shift, bare legs, a wide-brimmed black straw hat, and Italian strappy bronze sandals. The dangly teardrop trim is found on Britex’s 3rd floor ($19.95/yard), and the heavy-weight linen on the 2nd floor (55’ wide/$45/yard).
It is not too late to scoot on down to Britex Fabrics for some spooky Halloween fabric. Sew up an easy to make tote bag to carry your candy corn, caramel apples, and Sweet Tarts around. Compwalla posted easy directions for a beautiful and study bag on Instructables.com. You are never too old to eat candy while sitting under a tree in the moonlight. Devil-licious!
