Make Something Saturday: Purses & Bags

Lush Stuff Pretty Shoulder Bag

Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone is doing great!  Personally, it's been one heck of a week for me!  I've been busier than ever and just hope to enjoy a creatively quiet weekend.  I do have a few "to dos" to get done including completing my  Art Deco April Dress!  Be sure to have a look at the dresses already posted HERE.  

Besides my paper dress, I do want to get some more sewing done.  I've been working hard on card wallets, box bags, and zip pouches.  I hope to slip in making a new purse for myself sometime during the weekend, too!  Is that selfish?  Don't answer that!  For some new purse inspiration, I've been doing a bit of web surfing.  Here are a few purse projects that might inspire you this weekend as well!

Friday Night Clutch at Sew A Straight Line

The Project Corner's A Line Purse

These are all great tutorials!  If you decide to make a new bag for yourself and you want to change up the strap...and make it adjustable, click HERE for my Adjustable Fabric Strap Tutorial or if you like the look of a belt buckle for your purse strap, click HERE for that tute!

Happy Sewing and have a super weekend!

Good luck with your sewing this weekend!!! Love the bags you posted. I do hope you finish a new purse for yourself! No, that is not selfish. One needs to make something for yourself once in a while. You make stuff for others all the time! I hope this finds you in the mists of creativity!!!!!!

Hey girl! Those are some great projects.... did you get any made this weekend? I have been at the International Quilt Festival all weekend...and am absolutely exhausted. Does shopping for things to make bags/purses count as being creative? LOL!!!! I'll be writing soon!
