The Panel Tote

It feels like it has been forever since my last post!  I have been taking a little bit of a personal break, but I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things and back to posting new videos!

Today I have a tutorial for you showing how to make The Panel Tote using the Pins + Needles Kits pattern.  It is a fun tote bag to make that includes piping, quilting, inside pockets, and much more.  You can pick up your copy of the pattern HERE!

I typically come up with my own patterns/designs when I’m making projects, but I had a great time using someone else’s pattern.  The bag has features that I never would have thought to include on my own and different ways to do techniques.  The part I found the most interesting were the handles.  I had never made handles this way, but I will definitely be using this method again.

BTW don’t you just LOVE the fabrics on this bag?!?  It’s Howdy from Moda fabrics.  I got mine, along with everything else I used to make this bag, in my September Pins + Needles Kits box.  I rarely get the opportunity to work with such adorable and high quality fabrics and I’m loving it!

Let me know in the comments below what is your favorite part of the Panel Tote??  Make sure to come back next Wednesday for another new video.  Until then, Happy Sewing!

    Hi Whitney I love this bag especially the piping and the shape. Also like the colours you have put together! Can you post the measurements of the different pieces needed for this as I live in the UK so can’t get the pattern. Thank you! I have just subscribed to your newsletter. Jennifer
