With summer in full swing, you may find yourself in need of a tote bag more often. Whether you’re headed to a farmer’s market, a pool, or the beach, totes are always handy to have around this time of the year. DIY totes are a great way to show off your style and make your bag easy to spot in a sea of lawn chairs. Here are some of my favorites.
When I was younger, I actually collected flamingos. I had lots of stuffed ones in my room and even a few lawn flamingos. This bag would have been a summer staple for me.
No-Sew Beach Tote – Homey Oh My
You had me at no-sew and I stayed for the nautical chic look. It’s hard to believe this tote is homemade let alone no-sew. Choose a great nautical print to go with the rope, or let a colorful personality shine through!
Stamped Lemon Tote Bag – Alice & Lois
This bright tote bag makes me crave lemonade and just summer in general. Its simple, but definitely makes a cheery statement.
The Sunbathing Companion – The Golden Adventures of a Dark Horse
Don’t worry sewists, I haven’t forgotten you. This tote is perfect for a beach-going summer lover – it folds out into a towel with a pillow! This is the perfect way to carry everything you need for a great day at the beach.
DIY Rope Bag – Honestly WTF
One more lovely bag for those of you who sew. I love the subtle color change and would be proud to carry this tote with me all summer long. I may have to dust off my sewing machine for this guy.
