A Wonderful Project for Showing Off Larger Scale Prints!
Colorful prints from one fabric line coordinate beautifully in these charming tote bags. Pretty fabric flowers dangle from the front of each bag adding a fun whimsical touch.
This is a great project for showcasing those beautiful larger scale prints you’ve been saving for something special. Of course, the bag will be beautiful in whatever colors you choose.
Make one of this easy bag for yourself and others to give. It’s a quick project that will be done before you know it.
The outside fabric and lining are stitched together with batting to create quilted sides for the bag. Once the quilted front and back bag pieces are sewn together, the seams will appear inside the bag.
If you don’t want that, create an extra lining. Denise tells us how to do that:
If you do not want the inside seams showing, make the bag and the (second) lining in two parts, leaving the bottom seam open about 3 inches to turn later. Sew the bag top and the lining top together right sides together. Pull it right side out thru the hole in the bottom of the lining. Hand sew the hole shut.
The finished dimensions are not included but the bag appears to be about 14 1/2″ W x 13″ H.
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!
