With stores moving away from using plastic bags, fabric tote bags are becoming an essential item to bring with you if you want to go shopping. Cotton tote bags can often be bought for fewer amounts, and most people have a few extra around the house. Instead of using your bland blank tote bag, update it to be the perfect stylish bag for grocery shopping, carrying your lunch to work, or holding reading materials for the bus.
Handmade tote bags also make for a great way to wrap presents for parties or as an inexpensive but thoughtful thank you present that you can customize.
