MAKE THREE TOTES/PURSES WITH ONE CHARM PACK TUTORIAL

Hi ladies!  I don't know about you, but I love quilted bags!   I found this excellent  bag tutorial !!



The bag  is made from a charm pack.   It would be a great project for someone just beginning to sew!   You can easily add a flap,  zipper pocket or an outside pocket. The possibilities are endless!

If you don't want to purchase the charm packs, you can make your own.

The steps in this tutorial are very simple and clear!

 Check out what else is available at the Missouri Quilt Company .   Can't wait to  make a few!  So what do you think?

Blessings
Linda

UPDATE:   April 04/14

I've started a bag, but haven't been able to finish it due to my work schedule!  I'm hoping to have it finished tomorrow as the straps, flap, lining, outer bag  are all complete, except to sew  together, and  of course adding the button.  I changed it a bit by adding a zipper pocket, flap, and making it larger.  I absolutely love the quilting effect!  I'm giving you a sneak preview, so here goes!  Hope you like it!






Here's the finished project  except for the button!




The lining is light brown, so you can still see in the bottom of your bag.  I
put in a zipper pocket as well as added a flap & magnetic purse closure.


FINISHED!!!

ROSE PRINT TOTE BAG

    My next project is a rose print tote bag! This is the fabric I used, as well as a green similar to the background on the rose print.

.



  I quilted the entire bag as I really like the soft touch of the fabric when using batting!  This is my first time using Hobbs quilting batting, and I would highly recommend it.  It would also work well for other sewing projects such as mug rugs, placemats, etc.

  Thank you for visiting! Have a look at my new project below.  I hope you like it !

  Update:  The tutorial for this bag can be found at Craftsy!
Blessings,
Linda

BLUE/YELLOW HANDBAG

 
Happy Friday!  I thought I would share my latest sewing project with you from Craftsy -   Design Your Own Handbag by Brett Bara.  She's an excellent teacher, goes step by step, and makes sewing much easier than  it would be otherwise.

 The course is designed to be at  your own pace. You can go back for reviews, and ask questions concerning your projects or Brett's.  It's a friendly place to learn.  Have a look, and let me know what you think!  Design Your Own Handbag course 

 I hope to be doing a tote /pouch tutorial soon...my first!
