Waxed Tote Bag FREE Sewing Tutorial

This waxed tote bag pattern comes in two sizes, choose the size that suits you! I have made this bag with fabric bought on a french market, I have limited french so I am guessing that it is linen with a plastic backing. A waxed canvas works well for this bag design.

  • Bag base main fabric 15 1/2 by 5 ” (canvas fabric or similar durable fabric)
  • Bag sides main fabric 17 1/2 by 5″
