Pillowcase Tote Sewing Tutorial

Fabric Patterning with Wax Resist

Because this reuseable shopping tote is made from a pillowcase, it’s halfway finished before you even start it.  Using a standard pillowcase allows you to skip some of the cutting and sewing steps you’d normally encounter— which means less time fussing and more time creating!  The bag is surprisingly strong and takes up almost no space when folded, making it a great shopping bag or extra travel tote.
