Wire Framed Tote

A tote-ally easy tote bag! This bag is similar to those "31" bags only better. A wire frame top and foam lining gives this bag great structure.  The wire frame can be removed for washing. Add embroidery to the pocket for a special touch.

Supplies needed:

  1. Sewing Machine
  2. Pattern 'Wire-Framed Tote'
  3. Fabrics - Choose one of the three sizes to make and get amounts according to the pattern
  4. Bosal Foam - amount according to pattern
  5. Nylon or Cotton Webbing for Handles- Need 4 1/2yd. for Large Tote, Need 4yds for Medium Tote, need 3 1/2 yds. for Small Tote
  6. Decor Bond for stabilizing the top band- 1/2 yd
  7. Sew-in Hook & Loop tape (Velcro) - amount according to pattern
  8. Wire frame for tote
  9. Basic sewing supplies:
        matching thread
        marking pencil
        seam ripper
        wonder clips or pins
                                                                                                                                               Have your fabric and Bosal foam pieces cut before the first class. Follow the directions on the first page of the pattern to know what size to cut your pieces. Mark your pieces so you can find them easily in class. If you want embroidery or on embellishment on your front pocket, do that before the first class.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  NOTE: To make this project even faster and easier for class, I am going to have you use webbing instead of making the fabric handles. It will save LOTS of time! So when you buy your supplies, you do NOT need the fusible fleece that the pattern calls for. We have black, navy, and beige webbing here. 

    Also, we are going to finish the raw edges on the inside by using a serger. I am planning to spend the first class assembling the bag up to the point where we will be needing the serger. Then, if you have a serger, you can take it home to finish the edges, or if you don't have a serger, it's probably because you haven't known what you would use it for. :) So we will do a little show-and-tell use-our-serger thing!!!!
