Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

No more hauling brush, firewood, bulbs, tools, or garden clippings by hand -- this easy-to-make tote makes garden cleanup easy. It opens up so you can lay whatever you have on top, instead of trying to stuff it all into a bag. You can make this carrier out of canvas, vinyl, unbleached cotton, heavy weight fabric.

You will need:

Medium-weight fabric
Two 76 x 76 cm (30 x 30 in) pieces, for front and back
One 35.5 x 24 cm (14 x 9-1/2 in) piece, for pocket
Four 61 x 12.5 cm (24 x 5 in) pieces, for handles (or) nylon webbing
Scrap of 3/4-inch wide Velcro
Two 50 cm (20-in) lengths cord
8 grommets and grommet-setting tool
Sewing machine, hand-sewing needle and thread
Straight pins
Ruler/measuring tape

I have a few of these and they are great , in fact I have used these all my life , I have one in the back of the SUV as a cover and if any thing spills its so much easier to clean up , I also have made  fabric ones for when out at other peoples homes for the kids to play on , when time to go just pick up toys and all and go with out leaving a mess or lost toys
