- To finish up the tote bag, start by added a finished hem to the top edges of the bag.
2. Place the ears behind the front top edge of the tote bag, about half an inch down, and stitch them in place.
3. Fold the tote bag in half, wrong side out. Pin it and stitch down the long side seams, making sure to leave at least a 1/4 seam allowance.
4. Cut a 1 yard length of ribbon and pin each end to the sides of the tote bag, as pictured below. Stitch them to the tote bag.
Once you’ve stitched on the ribbon strap, you are all done!
