Charm Square Purse
This is a bag I see frequently in Japanese books and magazines. It is made from 17 squares. I used a charm square pack (Clementine by Moda). The 5" squares make a nice size bag. Or a least I really like it, not too big, yet big enough. The extra squares from the charm pack can be used to make pockets on the inside and/or the handles. If you don't have a charm pack, you can use leftover pieced squares from a quilt or even make some just for this bag. You can use a different size square to make a different size purse. It is a very versatile pattern. I plan to post a tutorial on how to put it together as soon as I edit the pictures.
