A talented seamstress with a mission, Renske Solkesz decided to create her own wardrobe after finding herself frustrated with high fashion prices. When we saw her chic and modern wardrobe creations, we asked if she’d be willing to create and share a fun accessory tutorial with us. I’m super excited about what she’s come up with: an amazing self-closing utilitarian tote! Design*Sponge » Blog Archive » diy project: renske’s minimalist tote bag
It’s back-to-school time, and it’s hard not to have school supplies on the brain even if school days are nowhere in sight for some of us!

The great thing about this bag is that once you understand the basic construction, you can easily make it any size you like.
