I came across these two tutorials and loved them so much, I had to share. The illustrations are almost cuter than the bags, don't you think? The little lumpy cat-dog-bear animal with the apple on its head? C'mon, that's just adorable! Sure wish I could read the instructions, but I think that anyone with intermediate sewing skills can follow along. Can't wait to give it a try myself!
tutorial 1: one-handle loop satchel (top)
