free bag patterns & tutorials collected from all over the web. Make handbags, tote bags, backpacks, duffel
bags, and more.

And for a beginner who's just leaning how to sew, a tote bag or a wine bag in particular, can be a great first
project because these bags usually consist of simple shapes and few seams and can be whipped up in almost
no time.

And making a bag can also be a great way to have fun with fabric selection. And if a bag is particularly
small, it can be a great way to use up those smaller pieces of fabric you have leftover from other projects.

And since bags are designed to hold stuff - often quite heavy stuff, it may be a good idea to reinforce the
seams of your bag and even interface your bag fabric for added durability.

Sewing Quick Tip:

Sewing over thick bumps of fabric where several seams come together can be exasperating as we try to
push or pull our fabric under the sewing machine’s presser foot, often ending up with uneven stitching.

A tool that can make this task easier is a “Jean-a-Ma-Jig” or a “Hump Jumper” (any store that sells
sewing notions should carry it). It’s simply a flat piece of plastic that slides under your presser foot,
giving your machine’s “feed dogs” something to grip to help move your fabric forward and keep your
presser foot level as you sew (no more pushing and pulling!)
