Pattern Details

Quilted double-faced fabrics make wonderful bags and totes, like this one with its shapely opening and bow embellishment. Make it from your favorite already-quilted double-sided fabric, but if you can't find one, rest assured. The pattern also includes yardage requirements and directions for quilting your own fabric. Every raw edge in the bag is finished, inside and out. There is an inside divided pocket and a roomy one on the back of the bag--perfectly sized to hold your smart phone. Directions are also included for making a bottom support for the inside of the bag. Note: Although the pattern is specified as not for one-way designs, the only pieces that would be cut without regard for the design direction are the straps--so it might not matter at all to you as so little of the print will show in the straps. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing and quilting skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS All are approximate due to varying fabric thicknesses: Bag is 12-1/2" tall and 16" wide at the top; bottom is 5-1/2" x 12"; handle drop it 12"

Recommended with this pattern

  • 12" square of Ultra-firm Pellon Peltex or other similar product
  • 1 yard coordinating or contrasting solid or tone-on-tone print
  • 1-1/4 yards quilted double-sided fabric, or materials to quilt your own as specified in the patter

I am a published sewing and quilting author with several books and many magazine articles to my credit. My most recent book, How to Make a Quilt, was published in August 2014 by Storey Publishing. I've written two other successful books for them-- The Quilting Answer Book and The Sewing Answer Book. I learned to sew from my great grandmother, two grandmothers, and my Mom when I was barely in grade school and I've been sewing ever since. I added quilting to my repertoire in the 1980s and worked for a major quilt book publisher as Managing Editor and then Editor-in-Chief for 5 years. Now I have my own business, designing quilts and tote bags and anything else that strikes my fancy. Go to to see my projects and whatever else I'm up to. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something you'd like to make in my Craftsy store!
