I wanted a new bright tote for the season. I had this yellow home decor fabric on hand that I thought would be perfect! The tote was a super simple construction, but I added some nicer bag hardware to take it to the next level!
To prepare the tote for this heavy hardware I had to reinforce the top a bit with some Peltex. I also reinforced the bottom since the bag is quite large.
Finally, I took the time to add screw-in grommets which really make this tote a "looker".
I am super happy with the results. This will get a TON of use this summer!
If you are interested in exactly how I transformed this simple tote into the "decked-out" version you see, you can read more and get my free tutorial here: http://sewplicity.blogspot.com/2013/04/tutorial-decked-out-summer-tote.html
