Has anybody ever made one of these? I really like the Quilts Illustrated patterns (makes Bow Tucks pattern). I'm looking to make something for one my kids' teacher, who is havng a baby in March. I'm looking at this one, as I'm not sure the Bow Tuck is big enough.

Update: I see from the measurements that it's really not bigger than the Bow Tuck. Any other ideas of patterns by them?

Another Update: This is a big one. Have anybody ever done this one?

The bow tucks would be so great cause of all the pockets. You can enlarge them, someone on the board did one large enough for a diaper bag. Maybe they will see this post and acknowledge or you can do a search in the bow tucks posts to see who it was. I'll help. Give me a few!!

I have made a couple of the Chubby Charmer totes. They were pretty simple and fun. I did use fusible fleece as per the directions because I had on hand and wanted to use up, but in the future, I will use cotton batting and spray adhesive. The bag won't be quite so "thick" that way. Here is the one I made out of squares collected on a shop hop (I didn't care for the pattern they gave out).
