Let’s start this post of with a few critical facts:

  1. I only know how to sew in a straight line
  2. When I sew, I’m too lazy to change the thread so I just always use white for every project
  3. Last year I sewed THROUGH my index finger while trying to make a felt unicorn on my sewing machine.

I tell you these things to prove one point. I am NOT an expert with a sewing machine. Frankly, my skills are basic at best, but guess what – you can do ALOT with basic sewing skills – including making this incredibly easy tote bag.

How easy was that!?! Break out that sewing machine because I see a ton of denim canvas bags in your future! And as promised, head over to the Damask Love Instagram Page where you’ll find a video on how to make the stenciled star accents!

Be sure you share your easy DIY tote bag on social media by tagging @DamaskLove on Instagram. I can’t wait to see what you create!

  1. You really do make that look SEW easy. ….on Jo-Ann’s site now looking at fabric. …since my craft room is really just a storage area for my crafts…. I have to find a place to measure, cut and sew ? Thanks for your frankness and all the crafty goodness you share. …from one south FL girl to another.

    1. I’m so jealous! You make using that sewing machine look so easy. When I bring mine out it’s a disaster. Great project!

  2. I’ve done a lot of sewing, but you made that bag so quickly, I just might try to use up some of my yard goods stash and make one or two as gifts! Thank you for that!

  4. Hey, first of all – great post.
    Second – where do you get good thick canvas? I’ve been wanting to make myself a hunting backpack for a while now(mostly to throw in second pair of pants and maybe a some Viktos( pretty cool jackets if you ask me 😀 ). Most of the canvas I run in is way too thin for this sadly…
