What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Diamond Tote Bag Link to website or photo blog.misusu.co/p/archive/diy-projects-quilted-diamond-tote-bag/ What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're a beginner I would go for the color block diamond tote bag. This is easier than the striped diamond tote bag. But if you do want to use striped fabric, consider this: bigger stripes, easier to sew. The pdf pattern comes with detailed drawings and instructions on how to make the striped diamond tote bag.
