UNDER CONSTRUCTION: NEW PATTERNS AND PHOTO'S SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED.....We started UPTOTE with the intent of only setting UPcycled products, that drive has recently changed. Although we still make UPcycled items as custom orders, we are focusing on making PDF patterns of our designs and selling the supplies we use to create them. So everyone can enjoy making a useful item out of something that has lost its purpose.

If you need a supply that we don't carry, please convo us, we might just have it and not have listed it yet. New supplies and Patterns are being developed by UPTOTE, we are diligently working on coming up with easy to use designs that even the novice sewer can follow, all with color pictures and step by step instructions.

Upcycling has always been a passion for me, I can remember being 4 years old and sitting beside my mom when she was sewing, taking her scissors and making sweaters for my dolls out of old socks.

I have held this passion and used it through out my life, living in New England for several years, I learned the saying Yankee ingenuity, now it is called upcycling. The name UPTOTE comes from combinging the words upcycling and tote, I carry a smiley pad with me at all times, so if I come up with a new idea I can jot it down right away.


Creating new wearable/usable art is what we are all about here at UPTOTE. All of our items are one of a kind, we make some in small batches to save materials but all are finished by hand and are one of a kind!

Currently I am using 75% upcycled fabrics in my bags, pouches and totes. My goal is to create a full line of products using only upcycled materials.
