    ReplyDelete
  59. I love that bag making is a combination of art and science. There's the art of choosing fabrics, lining and patterns. And the straight fowardness of bag sewing (which is so much better than the finicky-ness of clothing). Thank you for great bag patterns.

  83. I read your question AFTER I commented. My favorite thing about sewing bags? Actually, there are two things. I love choosing the fabric, but I love even more the surprise when the bag is assembled at the end, when you follow a pattern. Your directions are very clear, but the bag is always a mystery while you are sewing--a good mystery!
