This patchwork bag is super cute and easy to make especially if you are new to sewing. It includes an inside pocket and an optional magnetic clasp to hold it all together. They look gorgeous and you won’t want to stop at one.

This is a really easy tote bag tutorial but it makes an awesome looking bag. And you don’t need to go out and purchase charms squares for this. Just cut up some of your fabric into 5in x 5in squares and you will have your own charm squares.

Thank you for teaching such wonderfully amazing crafts You inspire me

  13. I made 3 of these today, a couple hours for each one. Love'em!

  14. Sublime Gorgeous Stunning. Wow that was truly amazing. So well explained with easy to follow step by step instructions super closeups and a soft voice to blend in. The bag looked IMPOSSIBLE to make for beginner. I've gotta try this. Really cute and adorable. I also learnt at the same time PATCHWORK. The handle is solid too. I love this tutorial. Thanks for sharing and caring. 😀😀😀👍👍👍

  15. Made it look so easy. I have to get a grip and make some of these totes. "Charm squares". What a lovely way to describe it.

  16. Doesn't look to difficult for a beginner. I may get brave and try this.

  17. u so amazing, I enjoying ur tutorial. thank u so much

  18. Thank you for sharing! I can't wait to try and make a bag! 🙂

  19. Hii i made 4 bags by looking at ur tutorials and also got lot of appreciations from others thank you so much ma'am

  20. I am new to sewing ( can't sew a zip yet!!!) and this is the clearest step by step tutorial I came across. Thank you SO much!

  21. Love it! So glad I found this tutorial. I love my bag!!! Thank you very much for having such a simple tutorial!

  22. what if i dont have fusible interface or batting ? something else or substitute plz suggest

  23. I really like the way this bag came together, just not the size. Too big for me and would make a longer handle to use as over the body. May make this. Thanks for the tutorial. Very good.

  24. I'm not finding this as easy to understand. she skips thru some steps and doesn't explain. jumping from step to step and the camera should be on the material not the person talking. I wanted to see what how it should look but couldn't. now I have to go back over it several times.

  25. I like what I see. I have to try and make one.

  26. 🤗 EUREKA!!!!!! I finally found a video I can understand. I'm a beginner at sewing and I've been trying to figure out how to add the batting/ interface, straps and see it altogether for the last 3weeks. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! Subscribing rt now 😜

  27. ik versta er niks van

  28. Very impressive & looks easy to do too..I really want to try sewing one..thanks for the tutorial.

  29. Eliana Mendonça Ribeiro Ribeiro

    5 "x 5" would be how much? Did the bag was beautiful, only it was too big. Did square with 15 cemtímetro was great. you can return saying the size of the square? Thank you!

  30. Eliana Mendonça Ribeiro Ribeiro


  31. Can u make one with frayed squares? Can u do a video please.

  32. awesome! thanks.

  33. thank u.  excellent teaching

  34. Krissy, Great tutorial, easy to follow, I have made two so far.  Thank you very much for sharing

  35. This is a great tutorial!  I made one last weekend and it turned out really cute.  One thing I did was to use regular batting instead of the fusible fleece and did some free motion quilting to secure it together before assembling.  I will definitely be making more of these!

  36. I have enjoyed this tutorial for several reasons, the most because i don't have to watch every stitch being done. I do love the interior fabric being one piece, it gives more stability to the patchwork since it has pressed open seams. Love it. I just subscribed.

  37. very nice

  38. Awesome tutorial! Quick and easy to follow and an amazing design!

  39. awesome!

  40. Cheryl McCuistion
