DIY Quilted Tote Bag

I am in LOVE with this bag!  I was so excited to learn how to make it, but even more excited to use it.  In fact, I bought more fabric for two more bags!  I'll upload those photos once I get them done!  You can get the fabulous tutorial from Quilts Illustrated for $9.00.  (I have no affiliation with this site, I just loved the bag so much, that I had to share it!)

The friends that I created this with decided to make a few changes to the bag. 

Rather than having two 9x9 pockets inside, we chose to use one 4x9 pocket and one 9x9 pocket.  I only used one button on the front pocket.   You can choose to put one at each of the corners where your fabric meet.  If you are newer to quilting, this will help hide corners that don't line up.  FYI, once I got to sewing the fusible fleece, I used a denim/jean needle.  Here are some more photos of my bag.  Let me know if you have any questions!

Make sure to come back on Wednesday for my Share the Wealth Link Party, it's open until Sunday each week!
