Tutorial Tuesday - U-Handbag bags!
Despite having had my Grandma's old Singer sewing machine serviced over a month ago I still haven't had the time (or made the time I suppose) to do more than use it to alter a few hems. I have, however, got a long list of sewing projects waiting for me! Some of them have been written by Lisa Lam, who writes the U-Handbag blog and is due to have her first book, The Bag Making Bible, published in September. She's got so many lovely patterns for bags and purses of all kinds of different shapes and sizes, including these free ones. I've decided, though, that the bag above will be the first one I'll make. I love tote bags! I use them for shopping, for carrying picnics, for knitting and crochet project bags, and I never seem to have enough! Lisa posted the picture above last week saying that if enough people liked it she'd write up a free tutorial for it - and enough people commented to say they love it! It's definintely worth following Lisa's blog, if you don't already, as she's really generous in sharing her tips for sewing.
