Let’s Craft: Adorable Embroidered Tote Bag

Let’s Craft is a special feature full of great crafts, inspiration and DIY projects that are perfect for any Modern Mom!

This project comes from, Jessica Begum, the crafty momma behind the blog Hipster’s Tea Party:

“It seems embroidery is trending right now, because I am seeing it everywhere!

I was inspired by a cute hand towel at Anthropologie in this project.  I am pregnant with my third child, so I decided to make a embroidered mommy tote as a little gift to myself.

This would be a great gift for a friend, but you’ve got to really like the recipient, because I must say, it’s a bit time consuming.  It took me a rainy weekend to complete.  Easy though!  I’ve never embroidered anything before, and this turned out so cute!  I can’t wait to show it off!”


  • A canvas tote bag or similar.  Most craft stores sell a selection of these.  I chose a messenger bag, because it has side pockets perfect for holding a bottle.


  • Embroidery floss


  • Embroidery needle


  • Washable magic marker


  • Scissors
