Make It Up in Your Colors!

This pretty patchwork tote bag is a perfect project for some of those scraps. Choose a combination of fabrics you love and enjoy the resulting one-of-a-kind bag.

While fairly deep, the bag is small enough to be used as a purse. A zipper secures the contents, or make a snap closure if you prefer (the zipper is quite easy to install).

Lengthen the handle, if you want, or leave it short to carry in your hand or slip over your forearm.

We love the scrappy patchwork appeal of the bag shown here. However, we can also imagine it in more coordinated color themes. Black and tan would be a stylish choice, or consider colors that you wear a lot.

The finished tote, from Three Owls Handmade, is 10″ w x 4″ d x 7″ h. The handle drop is 4″.

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!
