    Does anyone know a site where they have a simple easy tote bag pattern? I found this great guitar fabric at Joanns today for 6 dollars for 2 yards, they are moving to a bigger store, so I thought my two daughters would love it to make tote bags with. I appreciate any help. Thanks!

    McCalls Quilting, April 2009 "The Big Bag Theory." Super-easy bag to make. Takes about a day. I've made about 10 of them.

    See! I'm color challenged! If I had seen that I would not have bought that pattern because to me it's plain ugly! Your's is beautiful. Now I'll buy the pattern! Thank you.

    Careful! That bag turns out huge! LOL I've made a couple. It's nice because you use charm squares, so there is no actual measuring.

    Charm squares start out almost 5 inches, so about 4.5 inches. There's 4 on each side plus 2 on each end.

    This is the easiest tote bag to make and it has no exposed seams. My granddaughter and her friends make them by the dozens in all sizes. They sew fabric squares together to make a patchwork tote. http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/blog/?p=913

    Old jeans would be great for making these BIG Totes.
    and you could sew a jeans pocket on the outside or in.

    And you could put a school name or even pix on some
    of the squares. (thinking of for grand kids)

    Oh the ideas I am finding on this board.

    I am enrolled in the Craftsy class Quick quilting with Jenny Doan and there is a pattern for a CUTE tote bag using strips. I bet there is a you tube on it.
