STEP 11: Now sew the straps to the tote: Still working with the tote inside-out, return to the spot where you’ve just sewn the top hem. Measure 3 inches in from each side of the front panel and mark with a pencil; repeat with the back panel. Attach the straps at these marks. Be sure not to twist your braid as you set it in place. Tack back and forth a few times to make sure your strap attachment is secure.

STEP 12: Now, with your tote still inside-out, align the corners of the bottom panel with the corners of the tote, and sew them all together. Turn your tote right side out and enjoy!
