In this post, I will be sharing links to 10 free bag sewing patterns that can teach you a lot of new techniques on bag making.
“I want something edgy, with studs, something Avril Lavigne, something COOL!” I explained to my friends in frustration after browsing through almost 3/4 of the shops in the mall for 3 hours.
They were exhausted, my legs were hurting but I had bought NOTHING.
I was actually looking for the PERFECT bag. I would’ve ordered it online, but it was 2008, I had no credit card or online banking. I don’t remember what I bought in the end, but I wasn’t satisfied.
I was struck with the same dilemma in 2010. This time, I decided to sew my own bag. Ha!
I got onto the internet, got some basic hobo and tote bag tutorials, painted some skulls on solid cotton, made the bags. They were my first bags. Totally cool, totally AVRIL! But, there was one problem with them, they look HOMEMADE.
To make professional looking bags, you need professional sewing patterns. They’re not hard to find. Here are some FREE professional bag sewing patterns.
If there’s one thing I can’t ever get bored of doing, it would be making new bags with fun fabrics with patterns that are either free or very low cost.
