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!
The result is a stunning tote bag that displays the wonderful Kaffe Fassett prints. This design also works well with bright batiks or African fabric.
