Tri Tote bag with Jennie Rayment

Tri Tote Workshop with Jennie

You can never have enough (useful) bags and this tote from Jennie is also expandable so perfect to take when visiting a quilt show – as you never know how much you might be inspired by! The size Jennie demonstrates utilizes 5 Fat 1/4’s perfectly but you can make the bag smaller  very easily as it’s just based on triangles.   Jennie also gives you some great tips on how to add the lining and make the handles using the triple zig-zag stitch (did you always wonder what that stitch is on your machine?!)  Watch Now+
