I'm a sucker for a tote bag, especially in the summer. During the school year, I tend to stick with a smaller purse, using a canvas tote for my lunch and stacks of grading. During the summer, though, I love to just have a big ol' tote bag to throw any and everything into. Adding a row of pom poms and some felt fruit helps this tote feel especially beachy.
You will need:
- Plain canvas tote
- Felt: one yellow and one orange sheet
- Embroidery floss in contrasting colors
- Pom pom trim
Use embroidery floss to tack a strip of pom pom trim around the top of the canvas. Cut a semicircle and three wedges of each color of felt. Sew these pieces onto the bag, using a contrasting piece of embroidery floss. It's as easy as that!
I'm excited to take this to the beach or the boat this summer. Where would you take this fun summer tote?
