Here’s a free tutorial for a simple tote bag that uses charm squares! No problem if you don’t have any charms. You can easily cut your own.
*This project uses 1/4″ seam allowances through out.
(A) – 12 charm squares or 12 – 5″ x 5″ fabric squares
(B) – 14″ x 8″ fabric piece (middle)
(C) – 26″ x 14″ fabric piece (lining)
(D) – 20″ x 4″ (straps)
Batting – 27″ x 15″ piece
7. Place the [right-side-out] lining inside the [wrong-side-out] shell and clip together at the outer seams. Then place the straps in between the shell and lining. Place the straps at 2″ from the outer seams and allow 1/2″ of the strap to show. Pin to place. Repeat on the other side with the other strap.
A peek inside to see the liner fabric.
My favorite patch from the tote bag is this little green square with the little red flowers. So feminine and cute!
