Materials Needed:

  • large coffee bags (ask local coffee shop or gourmet market for empty bags)
  • twine or leather cording
  • needle and thread or sewing machine
  • various embellishments
  • rotary cutting blade and mat
  • scissors

Iron Bag

Remove wrinkles from bag by ironing it with a damp pressing cloth.

Remove Seams

Carefully cut off outer seams of bag; they are too thick to sew through and will be used later as tote handles.

Cut Bag

Each large coffee bag will create four totes, so cut bag into fourths.
