Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing and quilting skills

Pattern Description:

Pretty and practical, with just a touch of lace, this simple little tote is so easy to sew, you might want to consider making several for gifts. You'll need only minimal amounts (1/2 yard or less) of each of four coordinating prints for a single tote. That makes it a perfect scrap-buster project too! Polyester fleece for the batting ensures durability and requires minimal quilting. There's a hanging pocket inside for your phone or other small necessities. Add another if you wish.

I'm using mine for my book club bag--it's the perfect size for my book, notebook, pen, and phone. Use it for a hand-sewing project or your knitting, too.
