Make One for Yourself and One to Give!
Jewel tone fabrics make this large tote a gem for hauling this and that. It’s generously sized and easy to construct. You can have this finished in a couple of days.
The pieced body and handle are accented perfectly by the dark trim, however it will be wonderful in many different color schemes. In fact, this is a great project for playing with color. Make one up in your favorite fabrics with contrasting trim and make another version in different colors to give as a gift.
Choose coordinating fat quarters, or pull out scraps and leftover pre-cuts to design your own beautiful bag. Mottled fabrics are perfect, or use small scale prints for variety.
The tote, by designer Laura Blanchard, is 12″ × 16″ × 4″.
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!
