Pillowcase Tote, An Easy Sewing Project

My sister-in-law came for a quick visit in Illinois and I thought I should give her something unique that she can use.  I came across a tote made out of a pillowcase in a book written by Jodi Kahn and I was delighted.  She can use it as an extra carrier for travelling back to Las Vegas and perfect for her grocery shopping.

The two sides are then cut to form the handles and sewed together.  A ¼”-wide bias tape was used for the handles’ raw edges. To reinforce the bottom, a 4” straight line was sewed perpendicular to the side seams. Here is the end result:
