What I made Wednesday: patchwork bag

northwest is best patchwork bag

Patchworking, in my mind, is an American craft. It makes me think of colonial women stitching together tiny scraps of fabric, or women swapping elaborate blocks at a quilting bee. For a long time I’ve wanted to try, and so I sewed myself this tote bag. As expected, patchwork is time consuming due to all the cutting out (done with scissors as I don’t own a rotary cutter) and ironing. Yes, there’s some seam puckering, but for a first attempt it’s not too shabby.
