I made this tote bag at work today. I have had it in my head all week and I finally made it to shut my brain up! It took me less than 30 min cut and sew. It's made of pink and black Cordura. The seams are all taped and the handles go around the whole bag for durability Smiley



Everyone at work liked it Smiley C&C <3

Yup yup! I only did one this time but I think on Monday I'll cut out three or four and see how long it takes. You really only get a good timing if you do multiples. I am hoping to work it down to 20 min each but I think 25 is probably where I'll end up. It's so nice to have a cool down project between rifle cases lol

It's great and gigantic too!

I'll probably end up making a smaller size too. I had "grocery tote" in mind for this one. I love re-usable bags but my cotton ones die so fast because the straps are thin and not sewn into the body. I love drinking juice and usually buy two or three types at once lol Loves me some Cranberry Pomegranate juice! The heavy bottles destroy those bags in two or three trips...

 This one can hold a juice or two, produce, a bread and probably a lot more. I had that in mind while making it Smiley Our back packs and day packs are made out of this same material and can carry a lot of weight so I know that this bag can certainly hold all the juice I want for a billion trips Smiley It'd make a great beach bag too...maybe I'll test that Wink

It can be lined/ insulated/ have a plastic bottom insert/ foam liner... tons of options Smiley I just made this one to show my bosses something we could make.

I just added a video to my blog of the industrial machine that I use at home if anyone is interested in checking it out. It's not very eloquent but I thought I'd share it anyway Smiley
