Sewing up bags for School!

crafts, creative, Design, DIY, papillon, sewing, sewing patterns

School is going to start soon so why not make your student a bag for school! My Cruzers are great backpacks as well as my Mack Messenger bag.  My totes are always great to for lunch items or for gym shoes, ballet slippers, etc…………….

SO ladies, get out your sewing machines and pick a sewing pattern  to make!! 🙂

Get creative and crazy by mixing and matching fabrics, use some cool vintage materials or cut up an old coat that you no longer wear. Another idea is if you have old table clothes that have some stains in them, you can cut out the good parts and use that material for your inside of your bag! IDEAS are enless!!

Sew on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
