While you are waiting to see if you win a free Craftsy class, why not dive right in and try to make some of the bags I'm featuring here today.  These are free patterns, yes FREE!!  I love anything free, but especially free bag patterns and great tutorials to go with them.  I thought all of these looked pretty easy for beginners and great for Spring and Summer!

I am loving this Eater Bag because it would be a great '1st' bag for someone to try.  In Pam's tutorial you will learn the following:

*How to applique (great step-by-step instruction)
*How to make a lining
*How to add interfacing to outer fabric
*How to add handles
*How to box the corners



This bag is just begging for summer to get here!  Isn't it cute?  I love the mesh idea.  I do not live near a 'real' beach, but we do have a little sand in front of a small lake (well the city folk call it a lake, but come on people...it's a pond!)

Irene has a great tutorial on how to make this Market bag.  She actually upcycled some sheets to make this bag!  I always need more market bags, as I do most of my shopping at Aldi.  If you have not checked out Irene's blog, you should. She has lots of great FREE sewing patterns and she's a refashionista!

Before you leave, don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
