How Do You Make a Tote Bag With a Cricut?

Making a tote bag with a Cricut is an easy and fun way to create a personalized, unique piece of functional art. With the Cricut machine and some basic sewing skills, you can create a durable and stylish tote that is perfect for carrying books, groceries, and more. Here’s how to make your own:

First, you’ll need to choose the fabric for your tote. You can use any type of fabric that will hold up well.

Cotton canvas is a popular choice for a sturdy and stylish bag. Once you have your fabric picked out, cut out two pieces in the size of your desired bag. For example, if you want an 18-inch long by 15-inch wide tote bag, cut two pieces of fabric 18 inches long by 15 inches wide.

Next, it’s time to design your bag with the Cricut machine. You can choose from hundreds of different designs or create your own using the software that comes with the machine. Once you have chosen or created your design, upload it into the Cricut machine and let it do its work.

After the Cricut is finished cutting out your design on vinyl or iron-on paper (depending on which type of fabric you chose), carefully remove it from the cutting mat and place it on top of one of the pieces of fabric that you have already cut out. Securely press down on it with an iron or heat press if necessary.

Now it’s time for some basic sewing! Place both pieces of fabric together (with wrong sides facing each other) and sew around all four sides using a straight stitch. Make sure to leave some extra space at one end so that you can turn the tote right side out after sewing.

Finally, turn the tote right side out through the opening at one end and stitch up this opening as well. Now all that’s left is adding straps so that you can carry your new custom tote bag! You can either buy pre-made straps or simply attach ribbon or twill tape.

Congratulations! You now have a beautiful custom-made tote bag thanks to your trusty Cricut machine! With just a few simple steps you were able to create something unique and useful for yourself or as a gift for someone else.

Conclusion: Making a tote bag with a Cricut is an easy process that requires just basic sewing skills. All you need is some fabric (or iron-on paper) and access to a Cricut machine in order to make something truly special! With just these few items and some creativity, anyone can make their very own custom-made bag in no time at all.
