Paint Chip Tote Bag Pattern

$AUD 11.99

Express yourself with colour with this stylish bag!

Enjoy this tote bag pattern that is reminiscent of visiting a paint store and seeing the display wall of paint chips.

On my recent trip to QuiltCon, the modern quilt conference in Savannah, I was given a packet of eighty-four 2½ inch squares by Paintbrush Studio. It included squares of all of their solid fabrics. It was beautiful! I flipped through it many times before I decided what to do with it. I made a bag!

Of course, the bag only took 42 of the squares, so I have more to play with in the future. I love the bag pattern this chance encounter inspired.
