I came across an adorable no sew tote bag via Pinterest (you gals know how much I love Pinterest!) and knew I just had to make one! You are going to love it as much as I do I just know it! Check it out!
Isn’t it darling! It is too stinking cute (if I do say so myself - lol)! Yes I’ll say it again - this bag is no sew – can you believe it! Maybe someday I will get some sewing lessons but I think it is fantastic that I can make a super cute tote bag without sewing a thing!
The fabric is the Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric. My inspiration was from the blog Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. I pretty much followed her tutorial step by step to create my no sew tote bag. However, my fabric strips are 2” x 28” and I glued them 1.75” apart. And my ruffles go completely up the front of the bag. I also like the look of the fraying edges so I did not use pinking shears.
I used a hot glue gun to make all of those ruffles and the pleated fabric flower. Even the covered button for the flower center was made with a glue gun. I finished off the top of the tote with the Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon.
