Quilted Clam Tote Bag…

I’m so excited to share my summer/autumn project… my quilted clam tote bag, with internal zip pocket. These fabrics are from the collection ‘Amalfi’ by RJR fabrics, sewn together using the beautiful Gutermann threads


I really enjoy hand sewing, so i was super keen to make this tote bag using the clam template


The prints are just stunning, I especially love the lining fabric and I added a zip pocket (always handy to have a place for your phone and purse)

For the full tutorial, be sure to grab an upcoming issue of Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, and no need to worry about missing it, I will be sure to remind you 😉

Thanks for reading, enjoy the rest of your week…
