Small fur tote, a sweet gift for the holidays.

Step Five: Finishing the small fur tote

Turn the small fur tote wrong side out.  Pin the handles to the fur side where the seams meet.  Insert the lining print side out and pin all around.  The right side of the print should face the fur.

Pin all over the top of the bag.  Sew the top of the bag at 3/8″.  small fur toteUsing the gap you left open pull the bag right side out.  Do this step slowly because the fur is thick. Close the gap using a needle and thread.

As I finish this bag, I am thinking this pattern would be great to try in fabric even in leather.  I will definitely be trying a few options and share with you what I come up with.

But, one thing is for sure, if you try the project in something other than faux fur, make sure the interfacing is a little stiff so it holds the shape. Until next time!

    I made one with fleece and lined it with a medium weight interfacing and cotton. Came out great! Thank you! It is going to make a great Christmas present for a special little girl.

    I can’t seem to find fabric requirements anywhere. How much fabric and lining fabric are needed for this bag?
