A cute little bird sitting on a branch makes this tote especially charming. Plus, the tote is nicely sized to carry a lot, whether you’re heading to quilting class, shopping or just have a busy day planned.

Choose an attractive tone-on-tone fabric for the body of the bag. Dig into your scraps for the rest. The bag is a simple one to make and fusible applique makes the bird and tree go quickly.

Little Birdie Tote Pattern

Fusible fleece gives the bag structure. A piece of plastic canvas mesh or heavyweight interfacing strengthens the bottom of the bag.

The finished bag, designed by Chris Malone, is 12″ x 14″ x 3″.

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!
