Cut Your Fabric or Felt for Your Tote Bag

Start out by cutting your fabric or felt for your tote bag. You will need 3 pieces:

  • Cut one piece that is 12" x 30"

  • Cut two pieces that each measure 4" x 18"

All of these sizes are approximate. In fact, once you get the hang of making these easy tote bags, you may want to adjust the size to suit your needs!

The easiest way to cut out these pieces is to fold your 18" x 36" piece of fabric or felt in half so it is 18" x 18" and lay it on your cutting mat and cut a piece 12" x 36" and then trim it down to 30". Then cut a 4" strip and then cut it in half to make two 4" x 18" pieces.
