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!

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
