As the holidays grow closer and closer, and we panic more and more :), a quick gift that's easy to make looks better and better. Just because a gift is quick to make doesn't mean that it can't be special. I found this bag pattern at www.verypurpleperson.com The bag was intended to be reversible, but mine is not for 2 reasons. First of all I decided to make it a little more special by making it out of leather, and second, I wanted to add a closure. All in all, I am super happy with the outcome.
You can find the pattern HERE. On the page that I've linked to, you will find the pattern link down near the bottom of the page. It will print off very easily, not like the owl pattern from last week. There will be 3 pages, so there is a little taping, but not much. I think this bag would make a GREAT present for just about anyone.
Now, I would like to give a quick shout out to http://stineundstitch.blogspot.de/ . Remember the Soho Leather Tote? Here's a link, http://rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2014/08/make-your-own-leather-soho-slouch-tote.html
Well, Kerstin made a lovely bag using synthetic leather. This is another great idea for gift giving!!
Hope you have some time to make a few gifts and have your own Thrifty Thursday!
