It’s Easily Adaptable to Your Colors and Style!
Pretty patchwork against a neutral background is so lovely in this tote bag. The bag is nicely sized and has an inside pocket for small essentials.
The tote is quite simple to make. While the patchwork is set on point, there are no triangles to deal with.
Choose 5″ charm squares or 2 1/2″ mini charm squares in colors you love and set them against a lovely fabric for the body of the bag. Select a nice print for the lining plus contrasting trim to finish it up.
