Go with a Solid Band of Fabric for a Quicker Finish!
Scrappy piecing gives this easy tote bag considerable charm and appeal. A variety of grays serve as the perfect foil for the colorful patchwork.
The bag was adapted from a tutorial by Amanda at Jedi Craft Girl. Patchwork was used instead of a wide band of fabric around the top of the bag.
It’s an easy alteration and one you can play with to create your own unique version. Dig into your stash and have fun putting a nice combination of fabrics together.
The finished bag is 7” deep, 14” high, and 13” wide. There’s a nice pocket inside that can be divided into sections, as Andy from A Bright Corner did with her patchwork version.
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!
