I really like the idea of deconstructing 2 pillow cases and using 1 piece of each, 1 for the outside and the other for the inside. It would add a little funkiness to the design which is always nice. I can think of umpteen uses for this tote just in my workroom so am dying to get going making it!

This is a great idea! I have heard of the little pillow case dresses for Africa, and also drawstring bags for school supplies, this project would work nicely as a dual purpose project... Tote as well as a pillow covering or sit upon mat. This would make a very practical group charity project or scout or church group activity. Thanks for sharing this project idea!

I think it is sad that there are people in this work who abuse these sites to post scams. The one ad for 55 and over sent me spam, phone calls, intruder and hacker attempts to my computer and harassing phone calls saying that I won this if I would only by this. please is there some way to check these out and remove this ad from your site before someone gets significantly financially hurt/?

I love the patterns you offer. I would like to be able to print them out. This is a fun site with great sewing ideas.

I'm new to sewing, and this site. I found it very helpful, and interesting. I read some really negative reviews, and I must say I totally DISAGREE. I will come back often, and can't wait to start on crafts. Thank you for being here.

Totally unfriendly site. I guess if I had about 4 hrs a day, I could find one item. The site (sorry) sucks!

I've made dresses, coats ect. but you can always use bags for projects as well as shopping. I'm really glad I found this place.

I am a beginner. I have had a sewing machine for about 20 years and all I did on it was sew patches on jeans and jackets, along with hems. This was so easy. I loved it. It took me 1.5 hours because I didn't know what I was really doing. But guess what, I DID IT and I am going to do another one. I'm loving it.

I'm going to Africa with a mission team this summer to a girls orphanage.. I've been looking for a pattern simple enough to teach the girls to sew. This looks like a great one. I'll ask for donations of pillowcases and have each girl make one for themselves. Maybe we'll fill them with supplies. Hopefully they can make some to earn some money for themselves. Thanks for the great idea!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll send pictures!

God Bless You!

this site very interesting for me

Me too!

I made the pillowcase bag and it was very easy. I bought the pillowcase at the good will store for $1.38 and thought it was a good buy. Cynthia

the link is correct.....just need to scroll down to find the post. It's fabulous and quick! Thank you for sharing it!

The 5 Step Market Tote sewing pattern has a BAD LINK. It is linked to the How to make Ruffled Pants......Would appreciate correction to the link!

OMG! I just LOVE the sewing Dork! She is amazing. I used the velcro diaper covers and old fashioned diapers back in the '80's and have been looking for a pattern to make them for grandbabies. Thank you from the bottom of my fat little heart Sewing Dork.
