On this first Tutorial Tuesday, I have three super cute bag tutorials. All of them are easy and don't require a lot of hard-to-find materials. I hope you find something that you'd really like to make!
(1) The first tutorial is from The Inadvertent Farmer, and it's for a felted ruffle laptop tote.
All you need for this project is an old wool sweater, cute fabric for the lining, and access to a washing machine (to felt the sweater) and a sewing machine. I love anything with ruffles, and I think this laptop tote looks very sweet and girly.
(2) Our second tutorial, from blue-eyed freckle, is for a clutch made out of a dollar store placemat. I've actually made this one, and it was easy, fast, cheap, and fashionable.
(3) Noodlehead has a tutorial for a gathered clutch.
I wanted to make a bunch of these for Christmas gifts this year, but I ended up running out of time. At some point I am going to whip some up, though, because these are just a bit more special than your everyday pouch.
All of the project photos used in this post come from the blogs linked.
