For this bag, I used seven fat quarters with large-scale patterns. This fabric choice gives the bag a lot of variety and interest, as the fabric looks different every time you cut it. Don’t be afraid to choose bold and big prints! You can also use bright batiks or Kaffe Fassett fabric for this pattern.
The result is a stunning tote bag that displays the wonderful African prints.
