  2. Take your first towel and line it up against your pillow. Trim the towel so that it is the same width but with a small allowance, 1/2" or so each side (you can trim it further at a later stage, if needed) - as your pillow, and then put that towel to the side.

    Take your second towel and wrap it around your pillow, with the wrong side out. Pin it down one side, against the pillow, and trim the other side allowing for a 1/4" hem. Leave some excess towel along the bottom of the pillow. You'll use this fabric to attach the two towels later. Remove your pillow and stitch down the side that you have pinned. Hold onto any toweling that you have trimmed off, as you will use these pieces to make the handles for your tote.

    Turn your pillow sleeve right side out and place your pillow inside it once again. Pin along the length of your pillow and also leave a pin where your pillow ends and the hem will be.

    Pin marks where pillow ends and hem will be (envelope opening).

    Remove your pillow again, and sew where you have pinned - up until your marker. With the towel wrong side out once again, fold the edges of your pillow sleeve opening and sew a basic hem. Right side out again, you now have a home for your pillow!

    Take both pieces of towel and piece them together, short side to short side. The pillow sleeve piece will have two layers of towel with adequate room for you to attach it to the other towel. It is your choice whether you want to slide the other towel between these two pieces before sewing them together, or just bang them together and sew. The result will look much the same regardless.

    To make this item nice and strong, I made two seams. One just below where the pillow slides in, with both pieces of Towel 2 backed by Towel 1. I then stitched another seam just above the edge of Towel 2. You basically just want both pieces stitched together as strong as possible.

    Now for the edging! I used six pieces of Layer Cake from the 'Oh Deer' collection by MoMo. I stitched all six pieces together with a 1/4" hem.

    Then I folded the strip in half, width-wise, and cut it straight down the middle, leaving me with two matching pieces of edging.

    I folded these in half again and ironed them this time. I then folded each edge another 1/4" and ironed those edges down, leaving me with two pieces of binding, perfect!

    Depending on the size (length) of your towel, you should end up with two pieces of binding long enough to add to each side of your towel tote. This time I chose not to add edging to the pillow itself, as I wanted the opening, but the choice is up to you. All you need to do now is pin your binding to each side of your towel tote and topstitch it.

    So now you slip your pillow in, and roll up your towel tote so that you can decide where want the pockets and handles to go. Mark out those spots with pins, and leave the towel tote where it is. Time to make those pockets and handles!

    Choose another two or more (depending on how many pockets you would like) pieces of fabric, and hem along the top of each piece that you are going to use. Fold (and iron if you desire) the edges in and top stitch the sides and the bottom of each pocket to your tote, in the spaces you have marked with pins.

    Now take some of those pieces of towel that you trimmed off the second towel to make the pillow case. The size you make the handles will depend on how much towel you have, and what size you want them. The two pieces I cut to make handles with were 78cm long and 15cm wide. Stitch them together with a 1/4" allowance, and turn them right side out. Then pin them where you would like them on your tote, and make sure that they are aligned.

    Because you are sewing through so much towel at once, you will have to work slowly to attach those handles. You will also want to make sure they are as sturdy as possible.

    Once your handles are on just choose your method for closing your bag. This time I chose buttons, and a piece of cord that matched my towels to make loops.
