To make this modern patchwork tote, Anna Maria combines elements of two traditional blocks – the Log Cabin and the Snowball. She creatively riffs on the essential elements of both to arrive at her Melting Snowball Tote, which is lined and interfaced. Anna Maria covers cutting instructions, how to construct the bag, add a pocket and comfortable straps, and assemble it all into a charming, oversized tote bag.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ⅝ yd. fabric for tote back (Anna Maria uses Saffron Velveteen from her Field Study velveteen fabric line)
