Let’s make a Charm Pack Tote Bag!
Hello! My name is Amy, and I’m the designer behind Ritual Quilt Company.
I’m excited to share this FREE tote bag tutorial with you. Before I started quilting, I was inching my way into the sewing world by sewing up bags. Never made a tote bag before? I hope you’ll give this one a try. If you can make a quilt, you can definitely make this tote! I first whipped a few of these charm pack totes up back in May as some end of the year teacher gifts. This tote finishes at about 16” x 20”. The size is generous enough to fit a few binders, a laptop, and some books. With fall right around the corner, the charm pack tote would make a great back to school gift for your favorite teachers or students.
Make the HSTs
Now we’re going to create depth in the tote by boxing the corners.
CONGRATULATIONS, you did it!
If you’d like to make a tote like the one in the tutorial, the fabrics used are Essex Linen in Natural and Warp & Weft Honey by Alexia Marcelle Abegg for Ruby Star Society. The leather straps used were purchased locally, but there are tons of online retailers out there. Width used is 1”.
Here are some more examples of the charm pack tote for inspiration!
