Just Add Fabric!

This charming bag is an easy project that sews together quickly. It’s a quilt-as-you-go project that is practically foolproof, even for beginners.

Construction is simplified by the pre-printed batting that comes with the pattern. Add your own fabric strips for the front and yardage for the lining, then simply stitch-by-numbers.

Any color theme will be great for this bag. Start with a favorite jelly roll of 2 1/2″ strips or put together a nice combination from your stash.

She used Wash-A-Way Wonder Tape to ease construction of the handles (webbing strips included with the pattern) along with a Clover Press Perfect Hot Ruler and a Clover Press Perfect Roll & Press. You may have another method that works just as well.

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!
