This canvas tote tutorial by Emily and Erick of Hello Home Shoppe blog demonstrates how to create an eco-friendly DIY bag with rustic leather straps.

Using a common feedbag, which you can get from your local flea market or almost anywhere, the tutorial requires very little changes to be made to the naturally woven material. If the feedbag is a bit frayed or stained, don't worry about it because that only adds to the rustic look of the finished design. The leather straps are salvaged from a vintage leather belt which can be found at a secondhand store, and can be stained darker if desired.

Creating your own canvas tote bag is a great way to save money and the environment.
