This Clever Bag is a Wonderful Gift Idea!

Salvage an old pair of your jeans or find a pair at the thrift shop for this handy tote. The jeans pockets are used both on the outside and the inside of the bag for storing small essentials.

The tote is perfect for everyday use as a purse or use it to carry your tablet, book or other supplies.

It also makes a wonderful gift for just about anyone, especially hard-to-buy-for tweens and teens.

The finished tote, from Jo-Lydia’s Attic, is 11″ x 12″ (excluding the straps). It’s easy enough for beginning quilters with solid cutting and stitching skills to make.

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!
