45 (plus some) awesome bag tutorials revisited

45 plus awesome bag tutorials revisited

Bags. Lots of them. It’s been nearly two years since I did the last bag roundup and it’s been so popular that I thought a second round up was in order.

The thing I love most about all these tutorials is that you can mix and match sewing techniques to make your own creation that suits your needs perfectly. So if you can’t find the perfect bag, why not use the ones below as inspiration and design your own perfect bag.

Between the two posts there are nearly one hundred bag tutorials – heaps to get you sewing and lots of great gift ideas!

    wow you have some amazing choices here – thanks for taking the time to assemble them all. Now I have to make a choice of which ones I want to try!

    Love these how to make bag sites………..something like the t-shirt bags is a great way to recycle.

    Good stuff Melissa!

  3. says

    What an amazing list! There are a few awesome bags there! what a lot of work to compile them all!
    I am very honoured to find 2 of my tutorials amongst so many super ideas! thank you!!!

    @Felicity, I love the recycled t-shirt bags too. We don’t really wear t-shirts much though (not ones with prints on them at least).

    @African Aussie, I know, I want to make them all! I am a bit of a bag sewing addict.

  5. Angee says

    Hi! I love this list, roundups like this are priceless! One thing though, the link for the last bag directs to the bag next to it.
    Thanks!

  6. Katie says

    Love the roundup, super helpful! Unfortunately the knitting bag by versus doesn’t link right, it goes to the travel messenger bag instead. Thanks!!
