Transform the same ole' shopping tote

Our NWPP (non-woven polypropolene) supermarket totes, start becoming a little ho-hum don't they? Well, I found out that you can breathe new life into them!

From this

...to this

  • Make a paper cutout that fits inside the panel, for your pattern template
  • Lay it on chosen fabric, adding turn-under allowances. cut 
  • Pin fabric onto bag 
  • Remove plastic base from inside bag if it has one 
  • THEN turn the bag inside out 
  • Machine stitch top side of panel all around
