Ruffle Tote Bag Tutorial

Ruffle Tote Bag Tutorial
I started out to make this bag thinking it would be cute but not something I would carry around myself. I was really just doing it as a project option for Week 5 of the Learn to Sew series. But now that it’s done I am in love and I think I just might keep it for myself. If you have a daughter I think it would be fantastic as a little dance bag or you could use it yourself for a library bag. Anyway, I’m pretty excited to show you this ruffle tote bag tutorial. Three layers of ruffles on a cute little tote bag. And it’s got hot pink in it. And guess what? OK, so enough talk. Ruffle Tote Bag Tutorial: Supplies Needed: 3 coordinating fabrics. Coordinating ribbon-1-2 yards 1 tote bag (you get them at any craft store and they come in other colors too if you prefer) Instructions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. And that’s it!

noodlehead Once in a while i get asked about how I clean my handmade bags. I wouldn't say that I have it down to a science or anything, but I can offer some tips that might help you. I don't wash mine very often and usually only if there's a huge spill on it or at the end of a season (I usually change mine with the seasons, don't you?!). I really like having the ability to put mine in the wash and freshen things up! First, I don't usually pre-wash my fabrics. Use a color catcher. They're similar to a dryer sheet, but these you throw in the washing machine with whatever you're washing and it grabs onto any colors that are leaking out into the water. Use a Lingerie bag. Perfume/dye free detergent. Wash on cold. Line dry! Press after it's dry. Hope that helps a bit!

Sewing Patterns and Purse Supplies How awesome do these faux leather vinyl handbag straps look? If you want to make some great leather look straps from vinyl that don't show raw edges and messy threads, keep on reading because I can show you how. They are super easy to make and they turn out so good. I must say, I'm loving them. Recently, I took one of my bags down to the local quilting shop and the ladies working there marveled over my handles and thought they were real leather. If it sounds like I'm tooting my own horn here, I apologize, but I guess I am! A few months ago I was making a handbag from a pattern that called for premade leather straps, and after looking around, I found that they were either really cheap looking, really expensive or available only by order and had a huge wait for delivery. Finding the right vinyl is key, because with the wrong stuff you won't have that great leather look and it will be really hard to sew.

Rounded & Embellished {Faux Leather} Zipper Pouches A friend of mine had a birthday……and that gave me a good excuse to make her a little something. Instead of making her a regular ‘ol zippered pouch (like my tutorial here ), I made it rounded. And with Faux Leather…….AKA, vinyl. If you remember my post here , I purchased a stack of this vinyl on the sale table at the fabric store. But here’s a couple rounded pouch ideas using the vinyl……. ………but these pouches can be made with any sort of fabric . Both pouches are lined with a printed cotton fabric. And adorned with a little label. Just think of what you could stuff these with. And if you are anything like me, you’d appreciate a pouch stuffed with treats. (Good thing this friend of mine is a sugar junkie like I am. Make one for you , a friend, or that neighbor down the street who could use a little handmade love. Would you like to make your own rounded pouch? **Remember, you don’t have to use vinyl…….any fabric would work just fine. First decide on your fabric and prints. Related posts:

I did it in under 4 hours – so you could make up your bag in the morning and carry it to your beach party or picnic that evening! It’s a cute lace Hobo bag with a fun bright orange lining and tabs for the strap. I used a bright pink zipper for contrast – I think it’s so fun!

Start by drawing out your pattern. Fold your outside lace fabric in half with the selvedges together. Center the zipper along the top curved edge, between the right side of the lace and the right side of the lining. Here’s what the right sides will look like after you sew that seam. Repeat this step for the other side of the zipper, and the other curved edges of the lace and lining. Open up your zipper before this next step, it’ll be easier.

Beginner’s Bias Tape Bag with Free Downloadable Pattern I promised you this free downloadable bag pattern when we offered up the Simplicity Bias Tape Maker Giveaway as a great first project for your Homemade Bias Tape, so here goes… I’ve made a couple so far, and I usually don’t like fabric bags (i’m a leather lover) but I actually adore these for summer. They are super quick to whip up (under an hour) and are also reversible, so you can get a couple different looks in one swoop. You could also use store-bought bias tape, like I did for the big one (oh, and you can blow up or shrink the pattern to make different sizes – Scarlet’s been using the littler one as her lunch bag). Either way I think it’s a sweet & simple summery project. But I’m dying to know, what do you think?? , and some white suiting for the lining. 1. 2. made creating the bias tape a breeze. Here is how I made the bigger bag, by cutting out the pattern tiled at 200% and taping it together: 3. So here are all your pieces: 4. Pinch the next marks and do the same: 5. 6. 7. 8. Done…
