Sometimes you just need a big simple tote bag to carry around everything you need. But a plain tote can be a bit, well, plain! We all have those fabric pieces that are too big to throw away but a funny shape, or only a strip left, or you have a few fat quarters and don’t know how to use them up.
Well here is the answer. This quilted tote bag can be made mostly with fat quarters, plus another fabric that you have more off for the lining, pockets and handles. Or if you aren’t worried about everything being matchy-matchy, use up your smaller pieces for those elements too. Even better, this tote bag is softly padded and simply quilted.
It’s fully lined with pockets and even the straps feature batting to keep your shoulders comfy when you are bringing along your latest hand quilting project or maybe even that sweater you are working on.
It’s fun to make, a great project to practice your quilting/topstitching skills and just think of all the fabric and color combos you could use!!
Finished dimensions of the bag: 15 1/2″ x 15 1/2″
