Sew Your Own Tote Bag

Sew Your Own Tote Bag

Join FUN Mothers’ Club for an afternoon of sewing!

We will be making sturdy tote bags from reused advertising banners. An experienced sewist will be there to walk you through the project, from start to finish. The project is simple, yet customizable. All materials will be provided. Participants are also welcome to bring their own fabric (see the materials list below for recommendations). There will be eight sewing machines available and no more than two people assigned to a machine at any given time. However, you are welcome to wait for a spot to open up any time during the scheduled window. The project should take about 1 hour to complete. Due to the type of activity and tools used, this class is for ages 16+. 


3/4 yard of heavy-weight material (such as canvas, jeans material, leather, faux suede)

42 inches of 1” cotton webbing for straps


Leather needles for sewing machine

Pins or binder clips


For this sponsored event, all materials and tools will be provided by the Fremont, Union City, Newark Mothers’ Club (FUNMC) and Alameda County Library.
