Top 20 DIY Projects of All Time: #3 Renske’s Minimalist Tote Bag

by Grace Bonney

In the early days of Design*Sponge, I hemmed (no pun intended) and hawed about doing DIY projects that weren’t strictly home-based. I thought people wouldn’t be interested in fashion or accessories, but boy was I wrong. This simple tote bag became one of THE most popular posts we ever ran and it dates alllll the way back to 2010. I have heard from so many people over the years who have made this bag and love it, and I feel like it might finally be time for me to give it a try, too. Happy DIY-ing! xo, Grace
