I’m a firm believer in the notion that there’s a tote for every occasion. Over the years, I’ve held to that sentiment with a vast collection of tote bags to fit every mood and style. We’ve designed cute totes, macrame totes, and every tote in between. For this collection, understated elegance is the name of the game, and This Vinyl Striped Tote Bag certainly fits the brief. 

Gather up your materials and give this chic and easy bag a try. This tote bag uses very few materials, and the HTV is very user-friendly, making this a great craft for beginners. Once you’re ready, scroll down to our tutorial to get started. 

Tote-Tally Chic

This project is such a fun and simple way to dress up a basic canvas tote. Though beach season is coming to an end, there are still plenty of reasons why just the right tote bag is a lifesaver. Whether you’re hauling books from the library or taking a leisurely stroll through your local farmer’s market, this tote will get you where you’re going in style. 

This vinyl striped tote bag would be a great way to use up any scrap leather you have lying around from other projects. If you don’t have any, that’s okay too! Create your bag without leather detailing, or purchase some online. The design, despite its simplicity, is actually pretty versatile. We love the simple contrast of turquoise against the natural canvas but feel free to have fun playing around with different colors and patterns for your heat-transfer vinyl. 

As always, once you’re done, we’d love to see your creation. Share your pics with us in our crafters’ community, or give us a shout-out on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
