Tote Bag size (excluding handles) 14" wide x 13" high (36cm x 33cm)
Exclusive to Kiwiquilts these three tote bags are perfect for shopping, book club, a trip to the beach or a visit with your favourite quilt groupl
You can easily make several variations of the bag.
You can put one, two, three, four or six pockets on the outside of the bag and then on the inside there are instructions for a zippered pocket and another pocket that can be divided into two or three compartments.
To make the bag firm but soft I used .5m of bag batting
. A new product for me and excellent to work with.
What started me off was this wonderful thick cotton handbag print fabric which went perfectly with the 80% cotton/20% linen natural
coloured fabric. I still have some in the handbag rust colourway
if you want to make your bag a little brighter.
Then the mega spots in the Puppy Park range
looked fabulous for a more funky look....
and then I just had to try out my koru templates
to add a bit of NZ to the bag which looks great with the NZ koru batik toast fabric
The Tote Bag pattern gives you detailed instructions to make all variations - great for beginners!
Tote Bag pattern $15.00
Kits will be available shortly for the Tote bags.
