Pattern Description:

This mini tote bag measures 6 inches wide x 7 inches tall x 2 inches deep. It's the perfect size for packing your lunch, carrying a few books, or toting some toys. I embroidered one of my favorite birds from this Bird Sampler pattern onto a solid fabric before sewing it up, but you could simply use a fabulous print. Choose a fun coordinating color for the lining and you're ready to sew!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 6" wide, x 7" tall x 2" deep


  • 1 fat quarter for the bag
  • 1 fat quarter for the lining

Good Mini Tote Fiber Art Bags  October 1, 2012

I am learning / practicing different fiber art treatment for fabrics. I wanted a surface that was the right size that they don't become a major project, but can be turned into something useful.

Then, I found the pattern for this bag. It works perfectly. The instructions are excellent and my first bag turned out better than I expected (given my current sewing skills).

Thanks for the Free pattern.

Excellent Super fun Mini Tote!  May 10, 2012

I recently bought my very first sewing machine and I was eager to start a project that would be both easy and gratifying. This pattern hit the nail on the head. The instructions were very easy to follow and my little girl now has a darling tote for the playground. I may try it in a slightly larger size for myself so we can match!

I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
