Last week I focused on some of my favorite “for-purchase” patterns and pattern-makers, this week I thought I’d focus on my all time favorite freebie “bag” tutorials…..
Made By Rae
This free pattern is very well known among the sewing community. Made from a fat quarter, this bag packs some style and is quite simple to make. My first attempt while not so great, was followed up with the “redemption” version which I was very happy with. My mistake though was entirely my own fault though.
Super cute, super easy! I love this tutorial and I love this clutch. I have made a bunch of them for gifts (and a few for myself) and they are always a big hit. My full review can be found HERE.
Once you get past the pleats, this bag is an easy sew and the leather handles give it that “store-bought” look. I had made this bag for a craft show originally, but when it didn’t sell I kept it for myself (bad, I know), and I’ve gotten tons of use out of it! You can read my review of the tutorial HERE.
I encourage you to try these freebies out!
I’ll be sharing some more tutorial favorites in upcoming posts: Stay Tuned!
