Why is it called the Garden Tiles Bag?
The center panel was originally designed as a way to show off my favorite floral fabrics. The flowers in the shape of “subway tiles” are reminiscent of a brick wall with flowers climbing up. Skip the “tiles” and use just one fabric for the Front Panels or substitute a 11’’ x 17’’ mini quilt of your own design. The design possibilities are endless.

This PDF Pattern includes 22 pages of step-by-step instructions with photos to help you through each step. It is geared toward a Confident Beginner sewist who is ready to stretch their skills. I am just an email away if you ever have any questions.

Its a pattern. Seems eminently follow-able. Hard to rate quality of a printed pattern.

Lovely pattern. I made this in a day. I made it in the 6 month size for my 5mo and it fit really well. It’s an easy pattern to adapt the way you want, too. I switched the colors (black for stripes, yellow for body) and put the button closure on the front instead of the back. It’s absolutely adorable. My son seemed to like it too!
