Lazy Days Tote Bag – Free Tutorial

Lazy Days Tote Bag - Free Sewing Tutorial

Sew up a strawberry-sweet bag that’s the perfect size for carefree weekend days.   When choosing fabrics for the miniature patchwork pieces that make up designer Cindy Taylor Oates’ bag, select mostly small-scale prints. For more style, consider using a specialty fabric, such as silk douppioni, for the solid band or for the entire bag. If you want a more secure bag, think about adding a closure, such as ribbon ties, a button and loop, or magnetic snaps.
