Hi there! I really hope you'll come and join me in my next CraftyMonkies workshop, in which we’ll be making a fabulous, roomy Canvas Tote Bag! The bag finishes at 13’’ wide on the bottom x 12’’ tall x 6’’ deep and would make a wonderfully sturdy shopper or a weekender Tote. Believe me when I say: "You're going to love it!!!"

  • What materials work best for this lovely Canvas Tote Bag
  • How to use a two slider Zipper and how to add fabric tabs to each end for a professional looking finish

As always, I’ll share lots of tips & tricks along the way to ensure your finished Tote is as beautiful as possible!
