Go with Charming Appliqued Apples or Showcase Something Else!
This roomy patchwork tote bag is nicely sized for shopping and more. Plus, the front pocket can be customized in several ways.
Appliqued apples are so charming. Or, substitute another applique design you love.
Or use an orphan block instead, or even a vintage linen. It will be fun choosing something special to showcase in that space.
The bag also has a secured pocket inside for your keys, phone and other necessities.
It’s constructed with simple patchwork and is great for showing off pretty fabrics. Choose colors you love and enjoy creating your own unique bag.
The finished bag, designed by Sandra Healy, is about 14″ high x 20″ wide x 6″ deep.
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!
