A Little Craft Project- Sewing up your Own Purse, Tote, Bag

Making your own purses, bags and such are the rage right now. When ever I get a quilting catalog there are always lots of purse patterns-and I think those patterns are just too expensive. Especially when there are lots of free patterns available online.

Here are some links I found:
