Upcycle a Market Tote Bag with Rick Rack Fringe

Here’s what you need to make a Rick Rack Tote Bag:

Here’s how to create a Market Tote with Fringe:


To begin creating the DIY Colorful Market Tote, attach random lengths of the jumbo 1” Rick Rack in Pink, Yellow, and Fuchsia to the top edge of the market tote with hot glue. Use the colors you have on hand.


Apply random lengths of the 5/8” wide Rick Rack in Red, Baby Blue, Yellow, Lime, Turquoise, and Green to the top edge of the market tote with hot glue.


Layer random lengths of the small 1/2” Rick Rack in Pink, Purple, Blue, and Orange to the top edge of the market tote with hot glue.


Attach varying lengths of the mini 1/8” wide Rick Rack in Fuchsia, Lime, and Turquoise along the top edge of the market tote with hot glue.


To finish, cover the top edge of the market tote with a final layer of the jumbo 1” wide Rick Rack in Pink to hide all of the cut edges. This will complete the DIY Colorful Market Tote. Secure with hot glue.

Here is a detailed photo of the bright rick rack trims on the completed DIY Colorful Market Tote.

This would be a fun project to create for your girlfriends to usher in Summer!
