Tinker Tote

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That is easy... All of it. I had never made a bag before, pockets, installed a zipper or bias binding. It was a little intimidating, but I did it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just enjoy the process. This bag doesn't have to be made in a day or even two.

What you will need

  • Fabric
  • batting
  • decor bond
  • zipper
  • utility cloth

Q&A with Pamela62

QueenieDogsMom asked:
You're bag is smaller, I like it. I want to make one smaller as well. Pretty fabric combo's.
Pamela62 answered:
It's only smaller by about a 1/16" all the way around. I just wanted to tidy things up a bit. Thanks.
sew sew happy asked:
Wonderful bags. All the bags are. I am almost ready to start mine. Has anyone used their scrap bags to make one? I know it is hard if you have just started but I hope to pull from a controlled scrapped bag of several different projects. I still do not know how to post a picture. Maybe by my 2nd or 3rd bag. Everyone- keep up the great work.
Pamela62 answered:
My bag was almost all from scraps except for the lining , binding and bottom of bag. I had trouble posting my picture too. It keeps on turning them sideways no matter what I do.

Very pretty!! I am finding the quilt-as-you-go process to take longer than I expected, but I am loving it.
Pamela62 answered:
It took me awhile too!
