Sewing blog

Lots of free sewing patterns and tutorials for making bags, zipper pouches, quilts, mini-quilts, easy clothing items, and other crafty little things to sew.

Show Off Saturday... my newest Tiny Bag - Designer Style!

Update: Click here to go straight to the Designer Style Tiny Bag Tutorial.

This week I had an idea. I told you about it in a Studio Chat (see the video above)

Oh, and the smarty pants you can hear trying to tell me that I'm wrong? That's my 12 year old boy. He's my new Director of Video Production - which is to say he was giving me so many YouTube and video editing tips that I decided to hire him, lol!

The idea was: what if I sewed up my free Tiny Bag Pattern, but used the techniques in my (also free) Designer Zipper Bag video course???

I would get a Designer Style Tiny Tote!


So I tried it, and it’s worked.

Well, of course it did because most zippered tote bags are simply more complicated versions of my little designer zipper bags.

It’s got beautiful quilting on it, just like the Designer Zipper Bags.

And it also has cute little straps.

And pockets on the outside and inside too.

I’m sure you could figure out how to sew it too - but don't worry - I’ll write up a new tutorial and post it as soon as I can.

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
