French Tote Bag & Instructions

I made this today, I was wanting a new tote bag & got this piece of fabric of E Bay a few months ago, & wondered what to use it for! lol!!
The Bag measures approx 10" x 11" & took less than an hour to make

(These instructions presume some basic sewing Knowledge)

 To make a bag you will need:
2 pieces of Fabric 11" x 12"
2 strips 32" x 3.5" for the Handles
24" of 16mm bias binding
The pattern is just a freehand drawing I made myself

1.  With the right sides together sew together leaving an opening at the top, Make sure you do a double seam to give extra strength!

3. Fold, Press & Sew the Handles 

4. added Bias binding to the top of the bag

5. added the handles

6.Turn the right way around & press

You could also add velcrose to the top of the bag if required!
