Hi everyone! I have a really fun zipper tote bag tutorial for you today! And it comes with my FREE Anchor’s Away quilt block too!


I’m calling this one my Anchors Away Bag and it features the Nest fabric line by LellaBoutique for Moda. This bag has a top zipper enclosure, fun handles, an inside pocket, and a front pocket with my cute Anchors Away quilt block on it.

This bag is super cute, but still fairly easy. Even the anchor block is pretty beginner friendly, so I hope you’ll give it a try!

Let’s get started sewing shall we?

  1. Hey Erica!! Love Love your tutorials and projects!!! Question, what size piece of fabric would you use if you decide to do something other than an anchor for the front pocket? I was looking at the dimensions that you used but I wasn’t sure if it included the 3″ piece at the bottom of the tote.
