handmade bag inspiration

I have had the urge to try a bit of sewing lately so I thought I would share some of the clever ideas that are tempting me...

Fresh Lemons - farmer's market totes
 I could so use some pretty market bags!

A Little Red Ribbon - linen drawstring giftbag
This is just so sweet, perfect to hold summer treasures!

Bijou Lovely - pretty little pouch
I love the bold colours in this little pouch, and it's a perfect way to try a small quilting project!

I love redwork (especially at Christmas) but look closely at the details!  The embroidery, the measuring tape ribbon and the tiny Northreads label....soooo cute! 

You Can Do That - reversible bags
 This bag may be well beyond my limited sewing abilities but you never know?  I love that it's reversible. 

If you have made any of these patterns, I'd love to see your photos/blog posts.  Or if you have links to other fantastic bag patterns please leave them in the comments below.

I think summer and sewing go hand in hand, don't you?

  1. That linen drawstring bag is just too cute. I am not a good sewer but I might dare to try this one :)
    Thank you for sharing,

  2. Hi Sas,
    Oh do let me know how it goes! My eye has been wandering to pillow cushion covers again, it's so hard to keep my creative energy focused some days!
