"The Geometric Machine Appliqué Tote is a great project for learning or practicing your machine appliqué skills. It folds up easily so it makes a great everyday market bag. You can also use appliqué to add letters or other customization to make it special for the recipient. It makes a great project bag for your favorite crafter, or a simple folding tote for any eco-friendly shopper avoiding plastic bags. You can also use it as gift wrap! This is the eleventh of 25 free sewing projects by 12 bloggers in the Little Gifts Sew Along.

Finished Size: Tote: 13.5” (34 cm) x 10” (25.5 cm).

Tools: Sewing machine with free arm, zig zag stitch, and zig zag foot. Rotary cutter, cutting mat, and acrylic ruler, or fabric scissors, ruler, and fabric marker. Iron and ironing board. Pins. Sizzix Big Shot with Framelits 8 Piece Circles Die Set (optional), or 3 small circular objects (such as a mug, bowl, or masking tape) to use to cut out circles. Goddess Pressing Sheet (optional, but protects your iron!). Tweezers (optional, but make working with the straps much easier).

Materials: 100% cotton fabric. (I used about half a yard for my version, along with two small scraps of contrasting fabric. You could use 3-4 fat quarters instead.) Cotton thread in a neutral color for the bobbin. Invisible thread. Double-sided fusible interfacing."
