Learn how to make a tote bag with a free sewing pattern. This  beginner sewing pattern is a great way to carry all your essentials.

I’ve had a cute handmade tote bag that I’ve been using for years. It was time for a new tote bag to carry my books to the library or snacks and water to the park.

In the process of make a new tote bag for myself, I designed a simple, easy, and free tote bag sewing pattern to share with you.

Cut out two tote bag pieces and two strap pieces from the canvas fabric. Place the tote pieces wrong sides together.


Sew each side and the bottom with a 1/4 inch seam allowance and back stitch when you start and when you stop.


Trim each seam allowance down to 1/8 inch. Turn the tote right side in. Roll the seam with your fingers so it’s pulled all the way out, and press the seams flat.
