May 23, 2008, Newsletter Issue #71: Make Your Own Handbags

Tip of the Week

If you are a creative and crafty person, you should consider designing and making your own handbags. Many times all you need is a sewing machine and a good handbag pattern. You can buy handbag patterns at craft stores or you can find many of them online. Once you have the pattern for the bag you want to make, choose a fabric that you like and sew away. Once you are good at sewing a simple handbag, you can begin to add variations to your handbags such as pockets, pouches, and handles. Not only will you feel good about manufacturing your own handbags, but you will be spending a lot less money and ending up with a bag that nobody else has. Check your city or town's adult education classes as well; many of them offer sewing classes for beginners.
