What are you most proud of? I like that most of the materials are recycled and I like the front pocket.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I should have done a better job of measuring the front as I sewed the pieces together - I kind of winged it... so, the pocket is not quite centered. My husband said it made it look more hand made - so I'm sticking with that

I love this project. I make tote bags out of old jeans and am inspired to try something like this. You are very creative.

Marie, can you share the patterns and instructions?

08/29/2014 Flag

Yes. Sorry, the source used to be in another section that was deleted when Craftsy updated the look & feel of this section. Anyway- the basic instructions are in Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects on p. 135. I did not use that pattern for this - just cut scraps and a center piece to fit the same size of the front piece and continued accordingly. My local library has a copy and Amazon sells it for about $16.00. Hope that helps!
