My second attempt at making one of these bags, & I gotta say I was pretty happy with the result, considering I'm not much of a sewer. But this is probably one of the easiest types of patchwork to do.
This bag was made from Stampin' up Timeless Portrait Fabric & calico with a bit of wadding too.
I cut all the fabric with the stampin' up Scallop Square Die and the Big Shot.

|I didn't bother with pockets, though I think it would probably have been easier to do than I first thought.|
|I used all three designs of the fabric, then cut them & the calico with the scallop square die. I cut the wadding with a rotary cutter (like a little pizza cutter).|
|I layered each square with calico, wading then the patterned fabric.|
|I sewed a cross on each square to keep them together & create the quilted effect.|
I used Black cotton on the top patterned side of each square...
|...& Cream cotton on the calico side (in the bobbin).|
|All my squares with crosses sew on & ready for assembly.|
