Looking for a bag to carry all your beach or outdoor activity gear? Check out these free patterns for two terrific totes from DMC!
The Nasturtium Bag is stitched using 12 colors of DMC Embroidery Floss. For the fabric, choose a crisp white CharlesCraft Gold Standard Aida or stitch the design over 2 threads on our sturdy CharlesCraft Monaco fabric.
The designs can be stitched on any count you choose, and the finished size of the bag will be determined by the fabric. For example, if the Nasturtium Bag is stitched on 11-count Aida, the design area will measure 10 inches wide by 6 inches tall. For a larger bag, stitch over two squares instead of one!
The Buttercup Bag is stitched using six colors of floss. For the fabric, try natural-looking Fiddlers Cloth in 14-count or CharlesCraft Carolina Linen. It’s easy to make a large tote – just repeat the pattern as often as needed for the width of the bag.
