I have a penchant for totes. Instead of having my shopping placed in the plastic bags, I always have a stash of totes in the car when I decide to go shopping on a whim. I need to make these so that I can have a few extras for when I need them. These are also great hostess gifts. Practical and very inexpensive to make.

I was able to save a few of my grandmothers' old tea towels after she passed away. With this idea, I can keep her close when I visit the local farmer's market or anywhere I go when I use one of her beloved towels to make this tote. Thank you for the idea.

Such a simple, easy way to make a unique tote bag! It gives me a good excuse to go thrifting, although I probably have something already that would work. Especially now that the farmer's markets are in full swing, totes like these are really handy and they're washable so I won't have to worry about what produce I put in them.

This is a really cute bag. I love the idea of repurposing a simple tea towel for this very handy tote!
