I just finished a purse using this pattern. It’s the For Pleat’s Sake Tote from Lisa Lam of UHandbag. That’s her tote in the picture not mine. She has a great free tutorial section as well as PDF patterns for sale. She’s also got some great books about making bags and purses, the second one is coming out next week. They also sell hardware for sewing the projects on the site.
I’m making it as part of a fun feature on Michelle Patterns this week where we had to make something from one of our Pinterest boards. I’m in the process of editing my ‘Craft Lovliness‘ board and seprating it into things I actually intend to create and things that inspire me. I’ve had this bag in mind for a while so I set to work making it. You can check out what other bloggers have made over on Michelle’s blog and I’ll reveal mine on Friday.
