Charm Tote

This is a tote bag I made for my sister for her birthday. The fabric collection is by April Cornell for Moda and is called "Portugal." It is made mostly from a charm pack which is pre-cut 5" squares It is embellished with vintage pearl buttons that were my mom's. Some were left to her by an elderly dear friend, so I know some of them are quite old. I know that means a lot to my sister as we were both very close to our mom and miss her every day. It has many pockets inside. If you click on the photos they will enlarge and you can see the details.


  1. Love that little tote you made. Your sister is a lucky gal. I too purchased the Moda 5" layer cake square pack to make the Prairie Rose pattern big block quilt. Beautiful colors - rich. Nice decision to fussy cut that little flower for the front.

  2. That is a nice tote! I could use one of those.
