I’m back with another YouTube video – this time, it’s a full step video to make an Easy Leather Hobo Bag! This bag can be made in any material that can be left raw (so think cork fabric, vinyl, or leather), and it’s aimed at beginners or those who have yet to make a bag out of leather. read more

Hello there and thanks for stopping by! Today, I have a surprise (hey, it was a surprise to me too) FREE bag sewing pattern. I haven’t written a bag pattern that I can share since my Bag of the Month Club pattern last month. I am always so freakishly obsessed with writing patterns with tons of detailing (flap pockets, panels, hardware, etc.), that I thought…why not write a fun and quick pattern that is also appropriate for a confident beginner? This pattern can be sewn up in about 3 hours and has only 1 pattern piece to print out. read more
I just wanted to share the re-release of my tutorial for the ‘Hot Mess Casserole Carrier’ on the Pellon Projects site! It was part of the ’12 Days of Christmas’ series on the Free Spirit blog. As part of the Pellon site, you’ll be getting the full cutting layout of the pattern and the full instructions. read more

2. Open up the bottom left-hand corner and use your fingers to push it into a triangle, aligning the seams. Measure and draw a horizontal line that is 1 1/2” down from the point. 3. Sew along the line that you just drew. Trim the seam allowance to 1/4”. 4. Repeat Steps 2-3 for the right-hand corner. 5. Repeat Steps 1-4 for the Lining Main Panels, leaving a 6” opening at the bottom of the Lining Main Panel for turning the bag right side out later on. Trim the seam allowance to 1/4”. If you are inserting the magnetic snap, please do so at this time. It should be centered and 1/2” down from the top of each panel. 6. Turn the exterior right side out. Slide the lining over the exterior so that they are right sides together. Sew completely along the top edge. 7. Turn your bag right side out through the opening in the lining. Either fold the opening in 5/8″ on each side and topstitch closed, or slipstitch the opening closed by hand. Topstitch along the top edge using a 1/4” seam allowance. Press the bag well for a nice, finished look.

Well, surprise surprise! I received the news via a friend yesterday that they saw my project in the October/November 2012 issue of ‘Sew News’ magazine. I knew the magazine was due out soon, but I hadn’t heard anything since I turned in my stuff back in February, so as it got closer, I admittedly got a bit anxious…did they like the project? Had they decided to leave it out? You know, just those things you second-guess about. read more
