The irony of beach season is that I want no parts of the beach. It’s too hot and the thought of sand in my shoes makes me cringe. Salt water makes my skin dry and itchy and I can’t shake the thought that sharks may be in the water.  Yeah – I’m basically a killjoy when it comes to beaches…but that doesn’t mean I can’t envision a stylish day at the beach for all your beach-goers. It doesn’t mean I can’t DIY the perfect tote for all your beachy loot. This DIY Leather Strap Canvas Tote is so easy to make and the only way to hit the sand.

Transform a regular canvas tote bag into a DIY Leather Strap Canvas Tote Bag with the addition of leather and a few basic crafting supplies.

You’ll need:

INSTRUCTIONS

Use a craft knife to cut the leather strap in half (this will leave you with two 36″ lengths)  // Use scissors to cut the canvas straps off the canvas tote // Use clips to hold the strap in place on the tote where you want it // Use a pencil to make markings on the strap. You will need to make a total of 12 markings on the leather strap in a box formation // Use the punch to punch out all of the holes // NOT PICTURED: use embroidery floss to stitch the leather strap directly onto the bag using an “X” pattern

If you wanna get a little “schmancy” with your tote, add a bit of color along the bottom of the tote. Stay tuned for a full tutorial on creating that scalloped effect.

  1. おはよう。自分はおしゃれするのが好きで、最近は毎日オシャレ雑誌を読んでいます。今買いたいのは、財布とリュックです。財布は流行っているものではなく、素材重視で見つけたいです。ブランドならエルメスやミュウミュウが有名ですが、僕はココマイスターとか好きですね。今度の誕生日にでも買ってみようかな。革は豚革がいいですね。変わったものではワニ革(クロコダイル)の財布も価値が高そうで面白そうですね。バッグは自分は、20代なので年齢に見合ったポシェットも視野に入れています。コンパクトで使いやすいバッグが好みです。男性なら吉田カバンも良さそうな会社ではないでしょうか。このような財布とおしゃれなバッグとかを持ってどこか楽しい場所に遊びに出かけてきます。
