Classic English Flex Frame Pouch – The smallest bag in our eBook uses the always-stylish hexagons of an English paper piecing pattern to make a nifty little bag similar to a coin purse. You’ll learn how to add a sturdy flex frame to this little quilted handbag so it’ll securely snap shut and keep its contents safely inside.
Angie’s Big Quilted Tote – On the other hand, the biggest bag in this eBook is a simple quilted tote bag that’s perfect for the quilter on the go. You can use it to carry your fabrics and tools, or use it when you’re going on a trip (which makes this the perfect time to make one).
