Chubby Charmer Tote

Chubby Charmer is a great big bag.  It is great for toting bathing suits and beach towels.   A 9" x 13" casserole will fit in the bottom too!

Chubby Charmer is approx. 14" tall x 18" wide x 10" deep.  This handy tote offers lots of convenient inner pockets!  Even though the pattern is simple enough for beginners, your instructor Saphronia Hines has some wonderful tips and shortcuts to make it even better!  You'll even learn how to sew on the decorative buttons by machine if you wish!

What's required for the class?


  • (48) 5" squares
  • 1 1/2 yards for lining, handles, and pockets
  • 1 2/3 yards Pellon One-Sided Fusible Flex Foam (This was used for the batting in the sample shown instead of the Bosal Light Fusible Batting requested in the pattern.  The Flex Foam gives the tote more stability while remaining soft.)
The Chubby Charmer pattern by Quilts Illustrated, designed by Penny Sturges, specially priced for class members at $8.99, (regular retail price $9.99).

24 - 1/2" buttons to coordinate with your fabrics. These are for used for decoration only.

All of the required items are available for purchase at The Quilter's Trunk.

Please bring to class:

  • Your selected fabrics

  • Your small cutting mat and rotary cutter (large ones will be available in the classroom for your use)
  • Your basic machine sewing tools and supplies including thread, bobbins, seam ripper (you know, just in case someone else needs to borrow one), thread snips, etc.
