I've made several of these already, and I learned to make them from the video tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company called "Make Three Totes from One Charm Pack." This time, I decided I didn't need to watch the video over again, and just got started making it on my own after finishing up the scrappy slab for the outside of the tote bag. I measured an earlier tote that I made so that I would have the correct dimensions, although I made this one a little bit deeper. The lining is a sweet teal pin dot that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
Having some custom fitted pockets on the inside to hold my phone, keys, and other daily necessities is really handy! I also really like a magnetic snap to keep it closed.
This tote bag matches the Prince Charming pillow cover I made for the living room a few weeks ago!
And a close-up shot of the quilting on the outside of my bag. I'm already enjoying using it!
I'll be linking up with Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework - my favorite Sunday afternoon party!
