Why not take a tote bag with you wherever you go for those unexpected times when an extra bag would come in
handy?
Ikat Bag makes a tote bag that can be "scrunched away" into an adorable strawberry-shaped pouch and
another that can be folded up into it's own zippered wallet. And because these bags take up so little space, you
can keep one in your glove compartment, the trunk of your car, or even your purse.

If you find yourself with lots of straight edges to cut (like those on a square-shaped tote bag), you may want to
invest in a rotary cutter and mat to save yourself time and hand fatigue, especially if your tote bag has additional
lining material to cut or a gusset that may require a long, narrow piece of fabric.

To add even more durability to a tote bag that will be used to carry heavy items (like books), you may want to
choose a bag design that has handles that run all the way down the sides of the bag instead of being attached
just at the top of the bag. And feel free to adjust any of these tote bag patterns to your needs, perhaps making
your bag wider, longer, shorter, or smaller. Or perhaps lengthening the handles of your tote for a bag you can sling
over your shoulder.

And making a tote bag can be a great way to use some up of your fabric stash. Or for using up smaller pieces of
fabric that aren't really large enough for another project (you can piece these smaller pieces together to make
larger sections for your bag - see some of the patchwork quilted bags and bags trimmed with fabric for inspiration).

Sewing Quick Tips:

Tip #1: To make scissor cutting easier, wipe the lint build-up from the scissor blades with a clean, soft
cloth after every few cuts. Your scissors will cut more smoothly and you'll experience less hand fatigue.

Tip #2: When sewing your next garment, consider using different kinds of interfacing for the different
parts of your project. For instance, if you're making a shirt, consider using one kind of interfacing for
the collar and another for the cuffs.
