I'm on a bag kick. I made two bags using this Pleated Purse Pattern. On one I did as instructed with pleats going in, and the other I made with pleats going out.
Things about this pattern:
- it was FREE!
- instead of printing out actual pattern pieces, it just gave measurements - a little more of a hassle
- Pretty easy to understand - I did have to add a couple extra pleats, and I put mine together like the Buttercup Bag instead of using these instructions (turned it through the top instead of the lining)
I also put together a small backpack bag. I made this up without a pattern - it's just a rectangle with a couple of straps.
