Today we will be making a hand screen printed tote bag. Must be made out of hand screen printed fabric or it won’t work. There are probably already about a thousand tutorials on how to make a tote bag, but this one will be better than all of them.


Here’s my fabric.

Here’s a pdf file of my image that you can use if you aren’t original enough to come up with your own triangles!


Using 0.5″ seam allowances, folding down 1.5″ on each end, and sewing 4″ sides, an 18″ x 33″ piece of fabric will make a bag that is 4″ deep x 14″ wide x 13″ high. The long edge of the fabric is ([height x 2] + depth + 3″), the short edge is (width + depth + 1″).

      Wow, sorry to hear about your hands. But that makes your art and music even more impressive! How do you do it all without hands? There should probably be a documentary about you!

    That is quite a stylish looking tote bag. I like the use of white straps as opposed to some other crappy colour.

    BTW I still use that wonderful B. Man & P. Fart tote bag you gave me so many years ago. Thank you!
