This is a tote bag that I made for the Reading Rainbow 4 Swap. It folds up and then unfolds to make a pretty good-sized tote. I modeled it after one that I had purchased at the grocery store, but I made the bottom wider.

This is what it looks like folded up:


And here it is in all of its unfolded glory Wink


I did take pictures as I was making it, so I could try to make a tutorial for it if anyone is interested!

It looks awesome - did you do the embroidery yourself?  High class!!  But really, it looks professional and really well made!  I'd like to see a tutorial Smiley

Thanks folks! I did the embroidery with the help of my mom and her machine Wink

I'll try to work on the tutorial this weekend and maybe have something posted by Sunday night, if not sooner!

I really like this.  Yours is about 100 times better than a similar style I saw - but it has some cute emboidery patterns that could be used for the pockets.  I would love a tut for the one you made. It's awesome and so practical.

I don't know why I saved this link, other than 1 day, I hope to get a machine that does embroidery.  Here is the link for the embroidery designs if anyone is interested http://www.bizzibsembroidery.com/shopping_bag.htm

I still love this bag and I definitely want a tutorial for sure! I tried making a tote bag modeled after the ones from Albertson's and my bag was a DISASTER that was saved but looked nothing like the store bag...which made me feel badly because some poor sweatshop worker probably busted out those bags all day and made thousands an hour and I made nothing in days.

Tutorial, please! Smiley
