My Summer Days Tote Bag is being featured on the Mad About Patchwork blog today. I won a fat eighths bundle in their Summer “Pitch It to Win It” contest and then added a few more fabrics from my own stash to the mix. My tutorial on how I made this bag is over on the Mad About Patchwork blog so head over there for all the details. They have the “Summer Days” bundle available in their shop at www.madaboutpatchwork.com if you want to make a bag like mine.
