A Free Sewing Tutorial from Diana Ray of Ray's Sew Crafty
Diana Ray from Ray’s Sew Crafty shows you how to sew this sweet Spring Easter tote bag using half-square triangles cut from an Accuquilt fabric cutter and GO! Qube Mix & Match 6″ Block. If you don’t use a fabric cutter, of course you can still follow this free tutorial and use your own cutting method. This tote bag measures 17” wide and 18” tall once completed. Diana created her tote with four basket blocks as the focal point for her bag. This tote bag was beautifully made using soft floral fabrics, creating a beautiful shabby chic look. If you have a more modern style, consider a solid black or grey background fabric, with ombre flowers, or rainbow-theme baskets. Make this tote your own by adding your own preferences and your own unique style! This tote bag is a great scrap busting project!
