Holiday Gift Tote Bag – DIY Christmas Gift Collab

This month I am also participating in the “DIY Christmas Gift Collab” on Youtube. Each day for the week of Dec 11 thru Dec 17 a different Youtube Seamstress will feature a DIY Christmas gift video.

Holiday Gift Tote Bag

As part of this collaboration, I put together a tutorial for how to make a quick and easy Holiday Gift Tote Bag.

This gift tote bag is a great project for a beginner sewer. The basic construction is a simple unlined tote bag, with box corners.

Since the bag is unlined I choose to use French Seams to keep the inside of the bag nice and neat. Be sure to see my video on seam finishing to learn how to sew French seams.
