No Sew Tote with Wooden Handles

I had an AH HA! moment when I was sorting a section of my studio.  I purchased the wooden purse handles years ago at a craft store and never used them.  When I piled the handles on my tote bag stash as I was sorting…. inspiration HIT and I wondered  if I could make a NO SEW bag using a canvas tote.

I printed out a clip art llama and gathered some matching buttons.

Step One:  Cut the canvas tote handles leaving 3″.

Step Two:  Thread the tote straps into the handles and fold the end UNDER and pin in place.

Step Three:  Place the button making sure it is OVER the folded strap and sew the button  on securely.

HA!  After I ironed on the transfer I had a complete bag without using the sewing machine!

I love No Sew Crafts!
