This bag is a great way to practice your quilting skills and maybe even learn something new! I’ll be showing you how to do a simple patchwork panel with binding for the front pocket.


You’ll also learn how to add a zipper to your project. I know zippers can seem daunting, but trust me it’s so easy you’ll be glad you gave it a go!




We’ll also be adding a fun inside pocket that you can customize to fit your needs. I like to put my knitting needles, extra scissors and stitch markers in here!


I’ve also added these cute accent handle straps so you can carry your mini tote bag around with you wherever you go!
