Tote bags never go out of style. They are fun to carry and spacious enough to carry it to your office, university or college. The tutorial I am sharing with you all is the tutorial for a spacious one main pocket tote bag with a zipper.

I have added two pockets on the side so that it can be used to carry some extra water bottles or used as a baby bag as well. What better is a tote bag that can serve multiple purposes.

The bag has two attached handles to carry it by hand as well as a place to attach or detach removeable straps as well. You can found a tutorial on how to make an adjustable and removeable strap from my blog or YouTube channel as well.

If you do not want to make a strap by yourself, you can always buy them. They are available at multiple price ranges on Amazon, Ali Express as well as Daraz.

Final size of the bag is:

  • Height:24cm
  • Length: 28cm
  • Depth: 14cm

You can view some detail photos of the bag below:

The material I have used  to sew this tote bag is polyester canvas which is semi waterproof and make a great fabric of choice for canvas tote bags. The small straps are of nylon webbing. I have used lightweight fusible interfacing for the lining and pockets and heavy fusible interfacing for the outer fabric of bag.
