It Will be Pretty in Simple Patchwork, Too!

This charming crazy quilt bag is rich with color and texture. Hand stitching adds wonderful detail, but machine embroidery stitches can also be used. Add buttons and charms if you want, for extra detail.

Choose pretty fabrics then do as much or as little embellishment as you want. This small project is a great way to try out crazy quilt methods for yourself.

Crazy Quilt Bag Pattern

The bag pattern, designed by Jennifer Clouston, is from her book Foolproof Crazy-Quilt Projects. Fortunately for us it’s offered separately by C&T Publishing as a free project.

Unfortunately, while the embroidery stitches are illustrated in the pattern, no instructions are included for making them. Choose stitches you know how to make, search the internet for instructions (each stitch is named), or use machine embroidery stitches. Or, you can buy the book, as they want you to do.

The cute bag can also be made in patchwork or a lovely print with no embellishment needed. Its interesting shape will be charming however you decide to make it.

Once completed, the finished bag is 5˝ x 10˝.

You’ll need to add the project to the cart and go through checkout, but you won’t need to add payment information or be charged for it.




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!
