"The Shortcut Quilted Tote is full of shortcuts to speed sewing, to add structure and style, and to impress anyone who asks, "where'd you get that bag?" This tutorial how to sew an expensive looking boxy tote bag from one cut of double faced quilted fabric can be completed in one afternoon. Sew this expensive looking tote in the time it would take you to find one in a boutique. Shortcuts include: fabric and handle choice; one cut of fabric sewn to appear like eight panels; folds and top stitching to add visual interest AND structure without interfacing or boning."
