Use it for a Handbag or a Small Shoulder Tote!
Strip-pieced batiks are simply wonderful in this charming bag. Use the handbag every day or save it for special occasions. Or, fill it with quilting tools for toting to class.
Pockets surround the outside of the bag, while a snap or button closure secures the contents. The bag is fairly simple to make yet is so beautiful and impressive when done.
An (almost) monochromatic color theme works nicely in the bag shown here. Makes yours more scrappy, design around two or three colors, or stick with monochrome. The bag will be lovely in whatever color scheme you create.
The finished bag is about 12″ x 9″ x 4″, excluding the strap.
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!
