Finished up a tote and project bag this weekend. The tote is made out of Outlander themed fabric. Originally I was going to make a quilt out of it but I didn’t have enough of the natural fabric that came with the collection so Plan B was to turn the squares into a tote. I used a McCall’s pattern M5543. The only modification was I made the handles 5” longer. I longarm quilted the exterior so there is an extra layer of oxnaburg fabric in my bag in addition to batting.
Below is a knitting project bag. I found the pattern at Cottonweeds Quilt shop in Freeport, Maine last week. Liked it because there isn’t a zipper in this one. I’m terrible at sewing in zippers. The pattern for this bag is Bella’s Project Bag by Midcoast Cottage Designs. The bottom is lined with sew in foam. This is the big version of the bag. I’m currently working on the smaller version. Picture soon.
