Free Bag Pattern Links

Reusable bags are not only great for the environment, but they are also a great way to become more comfortable with sewing because they are mostly straight line sewing (until you get to the fancy purses) and they are forgiving--if your seams aren't perfect, it really doesn't matter.  The bag will still hold stuff!  Also, you don't have to use fancy fabric--I mean you can--but you don't have to.  I use scrap pieces from other projects, old jeans, pillowcases, old sheets, etc.  I've also made panels for bags on which I had practiced free motion quilting.  My free motion quilting is atrocious, but it works fine for the side of a bag!

So get started!

I had promised some links to free bag patterns on Wednesday, but I didn't get to it...Sorry!  Here are some links and ideas:

Joann's Fabric has 356 free "bag" patterns--all kinds of bags--all kinds of skill (sewing, paper, crochet, knitting, etc.):

I made a bag from this linked pattern at Joann's website, and it was easy...

Photo courtesy of Joann's Fabric website also has tons of free purse/bag patterns:

Go for it!
