Select a jelly roll pack from a favorite fabric line or use up leftovers from your stash.
If you start with a pack, you’ll have enough strips left over to make a Stacked Coins baby quilt, as tote designer Jodi Nelson did. Or, use the 41″ x 50″ quilt as a lap quilt.
The bag and quilt combo will be a wonderful gift for new moms – a diaper bag with a matching quilt.
The tote is relatively easy to make. Fusible fleece and interfacing give the bag structure (find Heat’n Bond Fusible Fleece here).
It will also be lovely in just about any color combination, and for any season.
Summer “Watermelon Tote” by Lesley from The Cuddle Quilter.
Big pockets on the outside of the bag make it easy to organize the day’s “stuff”. You can add inside pockets as well.
The finished tote bag is about 10.5″ H x 5.5″ D x 14″ W.
