Ikea Grey Tote Bag, with cinch, tassles and a tie

I will put up a tutorial but wanted to show off the new bag.  I was inspired by an Ikea Hack tote bag using a seat cushion, so I just added extra long and wide straps as a drawstring through the middle of the bag and voila, adorable! 

It was easy easy!  23 inch blocks of inside and lining fabric, add some channels on the front and back, thread through ties and make some straps.  I added zippers to the lining and one for the inside pocket.  I squared the bottom 4 inches so it'll sit pretty when it's full of whatever it's filled with.

My mannequin, Phillip, is looking rather fetching :)
