It Will be Lovely in Your Favorite Colors!

Dig into your stash for a pretty combination of fabrics for this easy patchwork tote. Charm pack squares that have been cut down to size work great, or cut your own 4″ squares for the project.

You can also use a solid piece of beautiful fabric for the outside of the bag. Or, adapt the pattern to use an orphan block or a pieced design you love.

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!
