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.
- 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 just made the cutest bag! This is great for beginners!It's all the rage in the online crafting world check it out: Free Pattern Here.
- Pattern was FREE
- Easy to understand and construct (I made it while my kids were awake - anything that requires thought I have to make when they are in bed)
- Only uses 1 fat quarter of fabric (and another for the lining) - my Walmart (that still has a fabric department!) sells fat quarters for $1 - what a deal! They also go on sale for $1 at Joanns occasionally. Fat Quarters are precut pieces of fabric packaged in a small square.

Looking at the last picture, I had one king-size pillowcase, so it was longer than the rest. There was enough material to make a whole outfit. I can't decide if this outfits says "what a cute boutique ensemble!" or "is that a pillowcase your child is wearing?!"
