Joining motifs in a diamond formation adds visual interest and allows you to create shapes and dimensions you wouldn’t normally have when joining them in square formation. For example, the bottom of this bag is flat because of the placement of two motifs in the center. Plus, the 4 motifs along top edge add greater depth and stability to the handles because of their pointed corners facing up. The construction of this bag is so fun, and can easily be modified to create a wider or taller bag. This is a great sized tote bag for everyday use, with ample space for toting along your craft projects, too. Or it would make a super stylish, eco-friendly market bag!
