I am searching for a handbag pattern using the rag quilt method as in this picture. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

Here are some on eBay
I can find that kind of bag, but I am in China now. I am sorry.
I don't know anything about the bag you are asking about but that quilt is quiet lovely...love all the colors in it. Hope you find what you are looking for.
Marian,I had a pattern for a diaper bag made the way your quilt is. I'll bet if you are a sewer at all you could alter it to make it a tote bag. I don't remember which pattern company. Just look through the pattern books at your local fabric store. Be sure to look under Home Decorating as well as crafts and assesories. Good luck.
Simplicity pattern 3898 but I don't know if it is in the current catalog - I have had mine for a while.
It is so easy. You will need 6- rag squares on the front and 6 on the back. No lining because the back of the finished square is the lining. You can put pockets on the inside before you turn.
You will need 8 squares for sides and bottom.
To make a square you need make a block. 5" 2 Kinds fabric and 1 batting. Sew together the blocks. Then put into bag and cut the edges. Be carful not to cut your stitching.
You can make rag straps or plain straps. Usually about 22" for long bag.
How much fabric do you need to buy to make this bag?
