I have an obsession with bags and purses, so when I saw this tutorial, I knew I had to make this bag. I picked up these fabrics at the scraps section at Walmart for a whooping $4! That’s $4 for both 1/2 yard pieces of coordinating fabric. One is a blue and brown calico print and the other is a light weight chambray. I checked out some Etsy shops and these bags are going for almost $30-45. You can make one for yourself in just under an hour without breaking your accessory budget.
I found this great tutorial and free pattern at verypurpleperson. The instructions were very simple and straight forward with nicely colored illustrated instructions, which goes a long way for beginners like myself.
It was a nice afternoon sewing getaway for me:-). I enjoyed making this bag. Now off to the mall to show it off!
