Quick Tote Bags

You know you are disorganized when you think it is faster to make a travel bag, than to unload the ones you own of the various items you are storing in them.
A bag like this is quick to whip up. Make it as you would instinctively make a bag: a length of fabric folded, seams double-stitched and finished with zig-zag, and a hem on the top. For lack of good handle material, I sewed together 2 lengths of piping, flat part overlapping flat part, the piping on the edges, and sewed several times down the middle. I made 2 handles this way and securely stitched them on the hem line. On a recent trip, these totes proved to be strong and handy!
