Classic Fat Quarter Tote Bags

Cottage Mamas Fat Quarter Tote Bag Sewing Tutorial

This is an easy sewing project for a rainy afternoon! This fat quarter tote is a fully-lined, medium-size tote bag sewn from six fat quarters and a little bit of interfacing. Once you see how Lindsay Wilkes of The Cottage Mama sews this classic tote bag together, you will be able to sew a few of them in no time too.  The fabric used in the sample photo above is Seaside by Riley Blake Designs.
