Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic Sewing Skills - able to sew a straight seam
  • Rotary cutting skills - able to use a rotary cutter, ruler and mat

Pattern Description:

I love tote bags! I especially like to make my own so I can choose what it looks like, how it's designed, long handles, short handles, pockets or no pockets, etc.

This is one that I like because it folds up easily for my purse for those times when you need an extra bag.

Easily made from several Fat Quarters, a couple of Jelly Roll strips and some basic notions. I even used 2 Charm Squares to make the Yo-Yos!

The bag sews together quickly and can be embellished in any number of ways - it's a perfect gift when you need something fast.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Bag is about 15 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches tall by 3 inches deep (not including handles)


  • 3 Fat Quarters, 2 Jelly Roll Strips, thread, 3 buttons
  • Different sized handles: 1/4 yard fabric OR Alternate handles: 2 1/2 yards 1 1/4 inch cotton webbing; 2 1/2 yards 3/4 inch ribbon
  • Optional embellishments: Rickrack, Piping, Yo-Yos, Other Buttons, Lace or Eyelet

You Will Also Need:

  • Rotary cutter, ruler and cutting mat
  • Sewing machine or serger (or both)
  • Hand sewing needles
