First pick up all the materials you need- there aren't many. Scarf, lining fabric, one small swatch of fabric or leather for the handle, pen, scissors and thread. Iron-on interfacing is optional, depending on the weight of the fabric.
Pin the lining to the scarf, right sides facing. Sew all the way around, leaving one 4" space open to turn the fabric out. Iron the edges. You will not need to close that small opening, it will be hidden by the handle.
Lay the scarf out, right side facing up. Fold one corner down and the opposite corner up.
Take the bottom right corner and bring all the way across as shown below.
Pin the seam closed on both sides of the tote- right sides facing and sew them closed.
Sew the handle lengthwise- right sides facing. Turn it out (this is where the pen comes in handy!). Attach a safety pin to the unfinished edge of the bag and pull through the handle until you see it on the other side. Sew both top edges of the bag together and even out the handle.
