Or Make it in Fabrics to Enjoy All Year!

Madras fabric is simply wonderful in this oversized tote. It’s perfect for picnics, days at the beach, the ballpark and more. It also makes a nice diaper bag.

Pockets inside and out make it a great sewing bag, too. Plus, instructions are included for a bonus vinyl-lined bag for wet swimsuits and such. 

Madras Summer Tote Pattern

Six Madras style plaids are used for the bag shown here. Or choose a combination of prints you love for your version. The perky fabric flower is a nice finishing touch.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
