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.
Flamingo Tote Bag
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.

The holidays are here. Need a quick handmade gift? I had a last minute gift to make and managed to crank this purse out over a weekend. If you need a quick project and have little time make this last minute gift. I wrote this pattern as simply as possible to help save you time. Plus it’s completely adjustable. Want a bigger or smaller purse? Just adjust the square and strap to your desired size.
