How to sew The Mae Messenger Tote Bag

Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire! 

Today I am here to show you how to sew a mid size messenger tote bag. For this project you will need approximately 1.5 yards of material, 1 yard of Pellon 809, 2 yards of 1.5″ webbing, two 1.5″ tri-glides and 1 grommet.

To begin, precut your fabric pieces to the following dimensions:

Exterior body: 15″ x 15″, cut 2

Interior body: 15″ x 15″, cut 2

Interior pocket: 15″ x 8″, cut 2

Flap: 11″ x 15″, cut 2

Tie: 2″ x 22″, cut 1

I hope you enjoy the project and will give the video a “like” so that we can rank higher in the search and reach more people!
