I found a pattern for this huge tote bag/purse during the local quilt expo and thought it was just too cute. The outside of the bag is made entirely from 5 inch charms squares. I have to say, I looovvee working with these precut squares. For the lazy crafter in me, they make life so much easier; and for the imperfect cutter that I am, they make squaring-up the sides so simple!
This bag is large and will hold a ton of stuff. I've used mine to carry around a laptop, kids' toys, and library books (but not all at the same time!) The inside features two HUGE pockets. I make the straps extra long because that's the way I like it! It's fully lined with fusible fleece for stability and softness.
