Back to Cool: One Tote, Three Ways

So simple in design. So useful in function. The classic canvas tote bag is a multi-purpose must-have in every wardrobe. Like shoes, you really can’t have too many. The basic square shape and natural cotton fabric make the utilitarian bag almost feel French in its ease and minimalism.

While channeling Paris is always a good idea, some occasions call for accessories that pop with personality. So, why not update a few of your bags from timeless to on trend? Totes are perfect for books, playdates, and days on the go, so we’ve designed one tote three ways. Our Design Your Own Tote Bag kit provides all the inspiration and materials you need to make it yours. 

Too Cool For School

Get kids excited about the new school year by customizing a tote they can use for their books, lunch, or athletic clothes. Consider throwing a party to celebrate back to school and invite friends over to decorate bags together. Just add a DIY taco bar and some sweet treats for an A+ summer farewell!



Park Perfect

Outfit yourself for the park or any playdate with this "totes adorable" bag, filled with all the toys you need for a fun afternoon. A clever, pun-worthy design only makes for a more playful day. Stow it in your trunk or stroller caddy, and you'll always be game-time ready.


Ready, Set, Go!

Rare is a day that we don't find ourselves in a situation when we need an extra set of hands — or at least another bag! An on-the-go tote can be tucked in your purse and take you from work to errands to brunch. Even better when this basic essential isn't boring. Personalize it with your favorite trends from stripes to geo gems to the evil eye and the fashion gods will be happy.

How will you design your own tote? We’d love to see how you transform your reusable bag for the runway. Share a photo in the comments below or tag us on Instagram, using @seedling and hashtag #ToteallySeedling. (Pun intended)
