I used this tote bag as a 'sampler' of the decorative stitches on my sewing machine. I quilted each square using a different stitch.  Lots of fun and good practice. I think it came out well.  I just love the new charm packs. So much variety and satifies my fabric cravings.

Very easy and fun to make. If you put the decorative stitches on, only sew those on the outside layer, not through to the lining. See the pattern for more details.
Glad you like it.

They say imitating is the best form of a compliment and I hope it rings true for this project :o)

I love it!
