Fat Quarters Tote Bag

You can’t have too many tote bags! Great for using as a reusable shopping bag, now that plastic bags are out of fashion. This little beauty has a pretty top border and colour coordinated handles.  The bag contains interfacing to give it a little bit of rigidity. Project by The Cottage Mama.


DSLR Camera Bag

This camera bag is such as great idea. It would be great as a Christmas present, or you can make one for yourself in your favourite fabrics. The project contains wadding that gives protection to your precious camera. Project by LiveItLoveItMakeIt


iPad or tablet stand

This great little project is a stylish way to hold your iPad while getting on with other things.  I love watching BBC iPlayer while cooking so this is ideal. Note that although the pattern says you need half a yard of fabric, you should be able to make this out of a standard fat quarter sized 18 x 22 inches. Project by MyPatchwork


Infinity Cowl Scarf

Practical and pretty, this is a simple project that is fun to make. Ideal to show off your favourite fabrics over a plain t-shirt or top. Project by luvinthemommyhood


Easy Fat Quarter Bag Tutorial

We love this small but perfectly formed bag.  There are different versions in this tutorial that you could make. But we particularly loved the one with long shoulder straps.  A great use of fabrics makes this a real eye-catching accessory. Project by DiaryofaQuilter.
