Combine elements of your favorite quilt patterns to make your own Scalloped Dresden Bag. The ruffly look of scalloped ends combined with the colorful pieces of your Dresden plate pattern will come together to make a casual style that suits all ages. Quilted tote bags made with scrappy quilt pieces can look even better than anything you'll find in stores, and you'll barely spend anything on it. Making this messenger tote bag helps you practice some important quilting techniques with very rewarding results.
