I think these rope handled totes are my favorite bags I've ever made. They aren't huge. They are only about 10'' tall and 16'' wide but they hold a LOT of stuff. And to top it off they are pretty! Seriously. This could be your new purse, gym bag, diaper bag, whatever you need. The grommets I used came from the home decor section at Joanns. The first time you purchase grommets you'll need to get the package that includes the tools (on the left). After that you can buy packages with grommets only. The tools only cost a couple dollars extra. These grommets are easy to install. Don't even think twice about them.

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
