Easy Canvas Tote Bag Sewing Tutorial

Hi everyone! I have a super easy Canvas Tote Bag sewing tutorial to share with you today. This project is super beginner friendly and also really cute and handy!



I’m going to use this bag to house my knitting projects, but you can definitely customize it to fit your needs as well. It would make a great book bag, craft project bag, and school bag!

I used some plain canvas and then accented it with this super cute polka dot canvas from Robert Kaufman.



This bag has a large back pocket, and then two smaller front pockets to carry all of your goodies!


I also added a small inside pocket for even more storage!




I also added a fun drawstring top closure to keep all of your things secure inside of your bag.

    Erica, so glad I found you! What a great instructor you are. I made the canvas bag and it is simply gorgeous!! I’ll have my daughter take a picture because that is certainly not my thing.
    Thanks for the pattern.
