Girls Lined Tote Bag

My daughter has a little bag that she brings to church each week.  She carries all her important things in it like her scriptures, some tissues, and pencil and paper.  Her well loved bag was getting pretty worn so she asked if I could make her a new one.  Of course I was happy to, especially if it means using up some of my fabric scraps I have piling up.

We dug through my fabric drawers and pulled out some different combinations.  It was a hard choice, as is always the case when you have too many options, but I love what she decided on.

Flowers, ruffles, and a pretty sky blue.

And of course a pretty pink interior.

Just right for holding all her important things.

And because sometimes a girl just needs a new bag.

After finishing my daughters bag my son decided he need a new one too. 
Click here to see what he picked out, along with a tutorial on how to make this simple lined tote bag.


  1. This is so cute! I love this idea!

  2. I am visiting you from Sew Can Do/Craftastic Monday. This is "sew" cute. I also like that you used grossgrain ribbons for the straps. It's actually quite strong when it is this wide. I use it too. See my series on teaching children to sew in the form of a Summer Sewing Camp. Today I feature My First Sewing Machine:

  3. This is too adorable! Love it and it's a nice idea to my nephew :)
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a great week!
