The fourth in our series of Twelve (non-consecutive) Days of Handmade Christmas from The Drapery. Handmade Christmas gifts are thoughtful, cost-effective and kind to the earth. And they're just as rewarding to give as they are to receive.
Half-Metre Tote Bag
Trim the edges and finish with a zigzag stitch to prevent fraying.
Sew, backstitching at each end, cut off the corner and zigzag along the raw edge.
Turn right way out and admire the squared-off bottom corners.
Fold the handle in half, matching edges carefully, and press again.
Pin the handles in place at the top and carefully stitch on, making a rectangle and then criss-crossing through the middle.
