A Wonderful Project for Leftovers!
Select a handful of 5″ charm squares and some matching yardage for this pretty tote bag. The fold-over button closure and matching tie detail are delightful finishing touches.
The bag is an easy one to make and will be lovely in your favorite colors. It’s based on the Mill House Inn Tote Bag with the addition of an inside pocket.
TeresaDownUnder at Sewn Up provides a great tutorial for making this bag.
A second bag by the same designer features a gathered strip instead of the tie detail. It does not include an inside pocket but you can add one using the instructions for the bag above.
We love the crisp colors, which will be pretty in either bag.
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!
