It Will be Lovely in Many Color Combinations!
This easy tote bag is a wonderful project for showcasing beautiful fabric. You may have a particular fabric line in mind or perhaps you’ll want to go through your stash and design a bag from your favorites.
Five fat quarts plus a yard of coordinating fabrics are all you need for a generously sized tote. Construction is very simple, making this a quick project to complete.
Ties on the sides of the bag dress it up and are easy to do. Plus, you can easily adapt the pattern and add a pocket on the front between the straps.
We can easily imagine making this lovely tote bag for gifts and for every season. Keep this in mind the next time a special fabric catches your eye.
The finished tote is Approx 17” wide x 14” tall x 3 1/2″ deep. The “Handy Purse Organizer” will work nicely this this bag.
Lynn, from Life With Lynn B provides a tutorial based on a class she took. She revised and simplified the instructions.
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!
