The Sawyer Bag – Free Tutorial

The Sawyer Bag Sewing Tutorial

by Sew Sweetness

A simple roomy tote bag pattern that you can sew with some quilt batting and your favorite fabric.  The bag pictured above was sewn with laminated fabric.  (You can learn how to laminate your own fabric here.)  The pattern is considered “easy”,  so if you have never made a bag before,  Sara from Sew Sweetness thinks you should be able to make this one!
