Patchwork small tote


Remember the patchwork work in progress that I was working on earlier this week?

Well, I made a small  tote bag using some linen and several blocks of 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) patchwork squares.  I used 24 squares in total, with some linen, and the handles are made of cotton webbing.  The fabric squares used for patchwork are from the Moda snippets line.

Inside it looks like this

This lining fabrics is one of my favorite fabrics.

Once again, I followed the very helpful fabric basket tutorial by Pink Penguin when making this patchwork tote.  However, I made several changes to the fabric basket this time, such as the size of the squares (2.5 inch squares used instead of 2 inche squares) and where to place of the handles (front and back, instead of left and right). 

Here, you can compare them.  One to the right is the fabric basket (original size) that I made a while ago.


I love the cheerful patchworks, it's so spring like and fun!

What a sweet basket - patchwork and linen is always a great combination.

WOW! This is fantastic, chick chick! I adore the fabrics you chose. Now you have got me thinking I want to make one of these for myself. :-)

こんにちは!このトート可愛いですね!!ちょっとレトロチックな柄がいいです。内側もGood!
バスケットもトートも巾着も基本の作り方は同じですよね~。それなのに、サイズや使うマテリアルを変えることで全然違う物になるから面白いです。
今度はタグ(chickchickブランドの!)を付けてみてはどうですか?もっとプロっぽく仕上がりますよ~。
ブログ、日本からもチェックしますね!
