Pattern Description:

Here's an easy tote to stitch and quit in a hurry. The inside padding in the tote and the coordinating accessory bag makes them perfect for safely carrying your laptop or other valuables. There's even a padded pocket attached to the tote lining sized to fit most e-readers. Stitch-and-flip the strips in place on the tote body padding to piece and quilt it all in one. The lined tote is an easy afternoon project once you've gathered your favorite fabrics in three coordinating prints. The stacked heart appliques add a little pizzazz to the front of the tote. Straps are also padded for your carrying comfort. Make the coordinating padded Accessory Bag to house your computer and e-reader cords, and USB sticks, or use it for your small digital camera and cord. Or, use it as a cosmetic bag or to hold hand-sewing supplies.
