Do you need a new bag?  Do you have an extra patchwork quilt laying around?  I’m so excited to share with you a super easy, super fun way to turn that extra quilt into a big beautiful quilted bag!

You will need: – 1 small quilt at least 40” x 21”* – 1/4 to 1/2 yard of cotton fabric for making binding for the strap sides. (you may want this binding to match the binding that is already on your quilt) – a fabric marking pen or tailor’s chalk – acrylic ruler, rotary cutter, and cutting mat – sewing machine – a heavy-duty needle such as 14/90 or 16/100 – coordinating thread

This image shows how I cut out 2 bag pieces and 4 strap pieces for sewing 2 bags from this single quilt.

There are 4 simple steps for cutting this project!

With precise measurements and 5 vertical lines you can make the exterior of the Quilted Bag. 

The lines marked on the strap should be even with the binding on the top edge of the bag.

This will be your favorite quilted bag tutorial because it’s so fast and easy. It’s perfect for carrying essentials, last minute travel, trips to the grocery store, or simply using as a big purse.

This is the perfect bag, so get the tutorial now! Swipe Up
