I used a fabric panel with a beach theme to make this tote bag. I used 2 of the panels for the main fabric piece on the front and back of the back. After making the bag, I realized that I should have added a couple of inches of a coordinating fabric below the fabric panel so that you would be able to see the entire panel – part of the panel is on the bottom of the bag. I did add a zippered inside pocket to the bag. I quilted the front and bag of the bag after attaching fusible fleece. I like the look of a quilted bag.
The directions were easy to follow and the pictures were helpful.
Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
