45 (plus some) awesome bag tutorials revisited
Bags. Lots of them. It’s been nearly two years since I did the last bag roundup and a few of the links have gone dead. It seems that making bags is really popular, so here are a whole heap more free tutorials. The thing I love most about all these tutorials is that you can mix and match sewing techniques to make your own creation that suits your needs perfectly. So if you can’t find the perfect bag, why not use the ones below as inspiration and design your own perfect bag.
