Teresa Down Under's beautiful bag

This patchwork tote was made following a really lovely tutorial that I found online. (Click here)

It's not often I have found tutorials as easy as this one to follow, but I honestly think if I could manage it, anyone could!

To make the bag yourself, you can either use up some of your own fabric squares for the patchwork top (5" x 5") or use a charm pack.

I just used bits of what I had left over from older projects, and an old bit of green curtain I had got from a charity shop!

I loved my finished bag, but maybe you wouldn't want yours to look quite so garish!

This is another great tutorial I found on Blogger, courtesy of Make The Best of Things blog.  It features lots of other great ideas, too!
