If you’ve ever found the idea of making a tote bag a bit intimidating, this pattern is a great place to start! It features a simple pocket-free lining, easy mock box corners, and step-by-step photos and instructions to guide you through every step.
Are you familiar with the No-Waste Flying Geese technique yet? If not, or if you could use a refresher, you’ll find this FREE tote bag pattern designed by Beth Hayes to be a perfect project for honing your skills.
The pattern includes yardage requirements, but is also ideally suited for using up scraps you may already have on hand. You’ll be making two different sizes of flying geese (larger flying geese are on the other side of the tote). The largest scraps you’ll need for the larger flying geese will be 7¼″ square, and the largest scraps you’ll need for the smaller flying geese will be 5¼″.
Your tote bag will finish at a handy size of 18˝ wide x 16˝ high x 3˝ deep – perfect for a few magazines and a take-along summer project or outing essentials.
How about this for an added bonus: we’ve just posted a FREE video demonstrating the No-Waste Flying Geese technique—click here!
