I am new to sewing and I am planning to make my own tote bags. However, I am a bit confused about what fabric to use. I have some leftover cotton fabric lying around and I was wondering if I could use that to make tote bags? Will cotton fabric be sturdy enough for a tote bag? I plan on using this bag for grocery shopping and carrying a few things around town.
Any advice and experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
