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:

  4. 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!

  6. 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!

  11. 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!!:)

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
