I love totes, they're so handy to throw your stuff into while running errands or taking a trip. At 14.5" H x 15" W, this bag is just the right size for carrying your papers, books, tablet, or whatever stitching project you're working on. When I saw this panel from Lori Holt's Flea Market collection, I just knew it would make a cute bag!
I lined the tote with fabric and fusible interfacing to give it some body. It's washable and reversible too. It's easy to make, I'll show you how.
What you'll need:
- Bag front & back (and optional inside pocket) - one "applique" panel from the Flea Market collection by Riley Blake (or other cotton panel that would look good with (2) 16" squares cut out for the front and back), or 1/2 yard of fabric
- Interfacing - 1 Yard Pellon medium-weight fusible
- Lining - 1/2 Yard coordinating cotton fabric (I used the text print from Flea Market)
- Handles - 1/4 Yard coordinating cotton fabric (I used the red check from Flea Market
- Lining of pocket (optional) - Scrap of light-colored fabric (you may have enough bag lining fabric for this
