How to Sew Simple Flat Quilted Totes with a Cheater Quilt Panel

A Free Beginner Sewing Tutorial from Pretty by Hand

How to Sew Simple Flat Quilted Totes with a Cheater Quilt Panel

An excellent beginner sewing project ideal for kids and teens learning to use a sewing machine and perhaps want to try simple quilting as well. Kristyne of Pretty By Hand shares her free sewing tutorial showing us how she created two quilted totes using one cheater panel in this Alice in Wonderland print by Lecien. Kristyne gives us the instructions to make two versions of this tote, one for short handles and one for long handles. This is a fantastic (and simple) way to use cheater quilt panels!  We really love this project.
