A simple bag that will be handy for everything whether it is around the home, shopping, visiting friends or at the beach. A friend has asked me to make her one in bright and funky patterned fabrics and I will be making one, possibly 2, for myself. As anyone will tell you I am a bag addict and hand made bags are my absolute favorite!

This is one of those bags... that when you sew one for yourself, your friends will soon be asking for one, too. That is what happened to me and I ended up making several and gave them as gifts. It was an easy pattern to use, the bags are quick to make and so handy for all occasions.

When you want that something different handbag. So simple and cute. I love the rope on the handbag reminds me of the beach. I like that you can just put what you need to carry like to work or friends or the beach. This purse seems to have some personality. Nice to have a variety of purses to choose from for whatever your mood is. Thanks for tutorial.

This is an all purpose Tote including Sunday for Hymn book & Bible.

For this simple Tote... I have chosen this name... "All You Need"

cute, fast and ready for a quick fashion change
