    Sweet Sixteen Charm Tote

    Here it is, divas and dons, my second quilted project:

    Sweet Sixteen Charm Square Tote Bag

    Sandy N., I hope this is at least somewhat "stupendous" .

    Cheers,

                      Awesome. I love this design and I have an aunt who would love a bag in this style. Adding it to my list.

                        Whoop Whoop! I have done a lot of totes but not one with this pattern. Just printed it out - definitely going to give it a try. By the way - yours looks great!

                          Hello Bakermom,

                          Would you be willing to share the slightly different methods you've used (ongroup or off)? NOW, I've got the hang of how this tote went together, but for real, when I did the first side it was a butt kicker. I couldn't help but wonder if there was some easier method of achieving the look. I'd love to see another way to make this, please.

                          Thanks in advance for any direction you choose to send.

                          Cheers,

                            I see that in the directions it says to do a weird 2 blocks by 2 blocks on the end so there is a funky seam to sew it into a loop before closing the bottom. Is there some reason I'm missing why it can't be sewed as 4 rows of 4 blocks offset by one block for each row?

                              I've used both of these, difference is in how the lining is done.
