Tote THIS!

Working on some stash busting totes, I made the little (top) one (13 X 7, + box bottom) to trial run the pattern and check the finished size - I was looking for a tote that's the right size to tote a lunch to work. It's perfect! It worked out so well, that I then made the larger size (18 x 13, + box bottom) - perfect for shop hopping and visiting quilty friends with quilty goodies packed away in the bag! I'm very pleased with how these totes turned out!

P.S. I should have posted where the pattern came from - it's called Charm Party, and is from the August 2007 issue of McCalls Quilting - back issues available here ... more info here :)


  1. Sandra, your bags are very pretty. I love the fabric combinations.
    What a coincidence that you posted about the same coasters. I love the bright fabrics that you chose. The one that I posted on my blog is really old. You can tell by the dusty blue and pink fabrics that I made them from. I need to make some new ones with new and updated fabrics. Mine looks pitiful compared to yours.

  2. Sandra, those bags are wonderful. I just may have to order that magazine. Thanks for the link.

  3. OMG these are fantastic!! Ever consider selling on Etsy???
