For a confirmed bag-a-holic like me it is simply impossible for me to scroll through a whole list of totes like this and not want to make virtually all of them, haha! This is such a good selection too that it will be impossible for you not to find something that you want to make.

I just watched the video for the messenger bag. I like how it looks with the contrasting fabric and the idea of the simple rectangle shapes to make it. I have never sewn using a buckle before and she explains it well and makes it look so easy. I am saving this one and would like to make it one day. Thanks for sharing this video.

These are all so pretty. I used to make my own bags but haven't in several years. This has inspired me to start it up again!
