About this Quilt

Finished Size : 15" × 17", plus handles

Designed By : Rosemarie DeBoer

Too many tote bags? Never heard of such a thing. Who doesn’t need a variety of carryalls to keep things organized around the house and while on the go? To make your own Canvas Tote, simply find some trendy fabric you love and whip up this easy pattern for yourself and maybe one for a friend.

A thoughtful design feature encloses the side seams before the bag is sewn together making the inside as beautiful as the outside—with no extra steps! So you can create a custom-made bag with a professional-looking finish in no time.

Designer Rosemarie DeBoer also includes tips for creating crisp corners and ensuring perfect handle placement so you end up with even straps every time you make this bag. She also includes other design details that give the Canvas Tote a little something extra, including a handy front pocket. It’s convenient for storing small supplies and features a rectangular swatch of lining fabric on the pocket exterior that pulls the design together beautifully.

This stylish Canvas Tote makes a great gift that you can easily customize for anyone on your list—a friend, a family member, a favorite teacher, or a crafter who likes to take her projects with her wherever she goes.
