Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Sew a Beach Bag... or Shopping Tote - Part 3 - Sewing the Floor of the Bag

This is the third of four pages that will show you how to make your own bag. Here you will be sewing the bag in a way so that it has a floor. At a later point, you can then reinforce the floor with a chipboard rectangle to help support it even more. More on the next page.

A seam allowance of 7 millimeters is included in the measurements. Sew with a 7 millimeter seam allowance unless otherwise indicated.

Craft Project for the Summer - Sew a Fabric Beach Bag or Shopping Tote
You can never have enough bags. And the best is when you have one that no other person has. This particular one is very sturdy and durable and can be used for holiday on the beach or pool or as a shopping tote. The fabric used is from Ikea and is a heavy and strong fabric that can hold a lot of weight. The bag is complete in one afternoon. Using nylon webbing for the handles also saves time in the creation of the bag.
