Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday - Pocket Purses, Calender Purses, Totebags, and Measurements
This is the pocket purse I made with the blue green bag. Measurements of the quilted piece before folding and sewing is about 8" X 11". Patterns are available for purchase for the pocket purses.
Calendar Purse or Checkbook Purse was made along with the blue green tote bag. A pattern is also available.
I started with a quilted piece that was 25" X 35". I cut the body of the purse 17" X 28" with 2 straps 4" X 25" and inside pockets.
See photos for measurements of finished bag.
Here is another quilted tote bag I made from a quilted piece of fabric that measured about 24" X 48". I cut the body of the tote bag 24" X 40" and 2 straps 4" X 24". I cut a small inside pocket from another multicolored quilted piece. The finished bag measures about 21" across by 18" deep.
I hope these photos and information inspires you to make your own quilted tote bag or purse. This would be a great project for you to do for May for Me!
Several finished Tote bags are listed for sale at Quilted Tote Bags.
I also make custom bags just for you. More photos in the Photo Gallery.
Several of the bags were made using Extra wide fabrics.
