Sew What! Bags: 18 Pattern-Free Projects You Can Customize to Fit Your Needs

by | Dec 19, 2014 | Crafts

Sew What! BagsThe minute, yes the absolute first minute, this review copy showed up our daughters began planning out which bags they would make. In just one short month they have made handbags, totebags, backpacks, laptop bags, and more. Using leftover scraps from our material pile they have made bags they use every day and a bunch for their friends too! The adult crowd was instantly impressed with the results. Whether you find yourself toting groceries, books, baby supplies, gardening tools, or a wallet and some electronic gadgets, you and your kids will find a bag design to fit you need. The focus is on simple, pattern-free sewing that requires no previous experience — just an inventive spirit, some fun fabric, and a basic sewing machine. Jumpstart your creativity with “warm-up projects” that will carry just a single object, from a pair of eyeglasses to a pack of tissues. The 18 core projects show how to usea variety of fabrics to make totes, drawstring sacks, messenger bags, organizers, satchels, and purses in a wide range of sizes and shapes. Every project is shown in a full-color photo accompanied by step-by-step, illustrated instructions. Many more variations in size, fabric combinations, and styling features are also pictured to show just a few of the dozens of possibilities for customizing each project.
