The Paint Chip tote bag pattern is all about expressing with colour. I love the bag pattern this chance encounter inspired. Of course, the bag can be made with any 2½ inch scraps you have in your collection. You can cut from a range of fabric or make it very scrappy and choose whatever comes to hand.
