Michael Ann from Michael Ann Made shows how to make a basic tote bag. This would make a great first project for someone wanting to learn to sew! She used fabric from an old pair of pants (brilliant!) but you could use any heavy weight or home decor weight fabric. Rather than lining the entire bag, she uses a contrast facing to finish off the top edge. Get the tute.
