Start Sewing Bags!

Posted by Debbie Rodgers on May 23rd 2019

Hilarie Wakefield Dayton has created a jam-packed book with Sew Bags: The Practical Guide to Making Purses, Totes, Clutches & More. Her book contains instructions for the beginner bagmaker (kids included!), as well as the experienced sewist who wants to design a custom-styled bag, pouch, or backpack.

The options range from the simple Rachel Drawstring Pouch …

… to zippered clutches like the Harley Wristlet …

… and on to a shoulder bag like the Savannah Cross-Body Bag.

Hilarie includes instructions for many techniques, such as making boxed corners or adding a patch pocket, so you will learn skills that can help with future projects. There are thirteen different patterns for purses, bags, totes, clutches, pouches, wristlets, and even a backpack to contain whatever it is you want to carry! Which one will you make first?
