Sew4Home shows how you can make this tote bag with a happy appliqued kite on the front. Wide ric rac trim gives the top a wavy edge. The tail of the kite is actually a length of cording that is couched down. It’s a sturdy bag, made from canvas (outside) with webbing from straps. Go to Sew4Home for the tutorial.
