DIY Farmer’s Market Tote – No Sew Reusable Bag!!
I’ve been meaning to share with you this DIY for over a week now but the Utah trip really pushed me back a bit since I was internet free most of the day. It was kinda weird but a nice thing 🙂
One of my fave things to do when waiting in line at a store or at the airport is to scour Pinterest for cute nail designs, new recipes, and easy DIY’s. I love DIYs that involve T-shirt cutting but I really try to avoid anything that involves more than just scissors. As I was scrolling, I saw some cool T-shirt bag tutorials that inspired me to make my own Farmer’s Market Tote. I am so into fringe right now, so I wanted to design mine with long tassles all the way across the bottom. As you can see from the steps above, it really is simple, quick, and lovely!
This tote is so great because you can fold it into a tiny bundle when you head to the Farmer’s Market and when you’re ready to buy your veggies, just unroll it and bam – tons of space! You don’t even have to worry about the bag getting dirty because it is completely machine washable! You can wear it over your shoulder or on your elbow. I believe it looks quite fashionable and vintage dontcha think?
The whole process takes about 15 min! Be sure to double knot your ties on the bottom of the bag and pull pull PULLLL to get that nice, long, fringe look. Also stretch all the whole bag before using so that you don’t have weird looking unfinished edges.
Good luck! I really hope you like it! Please show me your bags when they’re done and hashtag them #blogilates on Instagram (and tag me @blogilates) so I can heart them and comment.
Can’t wait to see your designs!
