I'm a bag lady - no seriously, I love making bags. I also love buying a good bag, but if there's a chance I can duplicate a 'ready to wear' bag by making it - I will. (and now that I'm sewing on leather I guess you can say I'll never have to buy a ready-to-wear againg - but to be honest - I probably will). Anyway, I stumbled on a blog today that, to me, was better then finding that perfect bag (well almost).
U Handbag has all kind of tutorials on how to make all kinds of handbags - I love it! You can even download a PDF of the tutorial! If your ever inclined to make a bunch of bags and sell them at one of the many craft shows this summer she even gives hints on how best to set up shop, price your goods etc.
I just received this fabric from Amy Butler
