Tote Bag with Diagonal Handles

Size:about 30cm (l) about 50cm (w) about 14cm (d)

A charming tote bag perfect for the upcoming season is here! The cotton linen stripe fabric with a hand drawn touch is from the MARINE series. The diagonally placed handles can create a different look. If you use the ecru beige lining material, the bag will have a natural feel. Or using one of the colors from the outer bag for the handles can also work as an accent.

We interviewed Anriko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
The pattern is large and bold, yet has a chic feel in silver print against the black background. I tried to create a bag that is not too cutesy with a shape that is suitable for a grown woman.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The bag itself is easy to make, as it is a larger version of a drawstring bag, like a lunch bag. So I added a little design twist to the handles, made with T-shirt yarns. This material is extremely popular right now, and easy to find. It only requires braiding, which you can do in an hour.

KF: What are some tips for making this bag?
There are no tricky processes in particular. Make sure that back stitches are secure on both sides.

KF: How should we use this bag in everyday situations?
The style of this bag makes it easy to coordinate with any type of clothing. Unlike acrylic tapes, T-shirt yarn comes in many colors and patterns. You can add your own accent by mixing colors or using bold patterns for the shoulder straps.

KF: Thank you very much, Anriko! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
