A free video tutorial from Yoan Sewing Studio demonstrating how to sew this beautiful quilted patchwork tote bag. The Irene tote is a larger tote bag with a pretty half-square triangle patchwork design as well as several internal and external pockets. This is a fabulous bag for any day trip, farmers market day, road trip, or your weekly shopping. The patchwork can be sewn into half square triangles with just 12 pieces from a charm pack (5″ squares). This tote measures approximately 17″ by 14″ once completed. A fantastic scrap-busting project for cold rainy days or any time. Sew it modern and bold, or create a pretty tote like the one in the photo.
