Judy S., blog reader and recent winner of a McCall’s Quick Quilts magazine, sent me a picture of the library tote she made from purple, green, blue, and magenta strips leftover from another quilt project. Isn’t it darling?
Click here to find measurements and instructions for this small bag on the blog post for January 4, 2016; you can read about the library tote I made from fat quarters for my grandson. Besides using strips instead of fat quarters, Judy also modified the instructions by leaving an opening in the lining (instead of around the upper edge) for turning the bag right side out. Judy is so pleased with the outcome that she is considering making totes for her seven children, choosing fabric each will enjoy.
Instructions for a simple, full-size quilted tote bag can be found on the Patterns page of this blog. Check out Unlimited Possibilities Tote Bag!
