I am a fan of charm squares but don't do much with them, mostly they just sit looking pretty amongst all my other fabric. I have made a lap quilt with them before but didn't really know what else to do with them. But last weekend I made this tote and although it is much bigger than I imagined, I am delighted with the results. It is simply 4 x 4 squares for both front and back with 4 x 1 for the sides and bottom. The handle is also a little long but it is nice and roomy and came in handy at the girls netball training earlier this week holding all the towels, water bottles and skipping rope. For anyone interested I found the pattern here: Buttonberry Tote Bag . Happy sewing!
