my first DIY canvas tote bag

the unfinished product


canvas cloth
old faded jeans
needle and thread

this one's quite easy to make but it took me about 9 and a half hours to do it BY HAND!!!
my fingers ache as i type this. i wouldn't advise anyone to hand sew a bag! i survived with minor injuries

i'm not happy with the design. it looks too boring. but it's the simplest design i could make with no sewing machine. i have no energy to paint and design it now so that will have to do. but at least i know the basics now and can experiment more next time.

one thing i realized is, i need a sewing machine! gotta buy this one.

Brother CS6000i Sew Advance Sew Affordable

it comes with a free table and a hard case for transporting.
