Pattern Description:

The Quilted Traveler's Tote
Here's the perfect carry-on bag and a great tote to load with supplies for quilting and sewing classes! Use double-sided quilted fabric that you make from your favorite fabrics, following the panel-by-panel quilting directions. Of course, if you find the perfect double-sided, already-quilted fabric (directions included), you can use that instead and your tote will stitch up even faster.

Tote features include:
Zip-top panel that opens and drops down inside or expands when zipped

Directions for using already-quilted fabric if you don't want to quilt your own

An inside zipped security pocket and one on the outside too.

Divided pockets on the outside.

Clearly illustrated, step-by-step directions

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • With Zipper Panel dropped inside: 14-1/2" (H) x 16" (W) x 6" (D)
  • Zipped, with zipper panel up: 17-1/2" (H) x 16" (W) x 6" (D)


  • Basic sewing tools
  • Rotary cutting tools (cutter, mat, and ruler) recommended

You Will Also Need:

  • Zipper for top panel
  • Zipper for inside and outside pockets
