Bags, bags and more bags.

Do you like to make bags? I am a recent bag-making convert and I'm hooked. They are one of the many things on my list to make.
And I LOVE free tutorials. This one is the famous Buttercup bag from Made by Rae. I loved it so much, I've since bought her pattern for a bigger version.

Well, I recently hit the jackpot for free bag patterns and tutorials:
This wonderful resource collects bag patterns and tutorials from all over the blogosphere into one handy list, complete with pictures and links. I discovered it when they sent me a note to let me know they had included my messenger bag tutorial. I was completely flattered to be held in such good company.Here are a couple that I really want to try:

Thanks so much...I think! I am a bag fiend and although I already have some of these listed on my "to-do" list, I believe I have just found about a half dozen more to try. Truly, Thanks!

Love your bags, but holy cow, you certainly did hit the jackpot! What a terrific resource for the bag maker! Thanks for sharing.

I'm DEFINATELY bookmarking that site! I had several of the individual sites bookmarked already, because I too, am into making purses...more for my daughters than for myself. THanks!

I love that Wasp bag! If we ever get around to my sewing lessons, can I make that one?

Thanks for the link...I love making bags. If I have extra fabric when I make my daugher a sundress I make her a double drawstring bag. Two Christmas' ago I made over 45 double handle sacks to give to my family for shopping. They were a big hit, especially since they were this shiny black stretchy denium that I bought for $1 a yard!!:)

I love those bags. I've been wanting to venture into bag making lately. I'll have to give one of those a try real soon.
