I made this tote bag using Malka Dubrawsky charms I bought at Alewives when we had our quilt retreat. I found this tutorial online. The pattern uses 16 charms, 8 per side, so I made mine very orange on the front and very turquoise on the back. I'm ready for summer now. Oops, I do need to attach a button, that little thing in the middle is the flap to secure a button. I may stitch a button to the flap and use velcro underneath. I do like a tote bag that fastens but velcro is the way to go.
I sewed a pocket onto the lining out of the orange batik and decorated the pocket with another charm. Love that bow!
