One bag done three ways! It’s fun to see how a basic bag can evolve. This is the third version of our Trio, featuring straight line quilting across the upper panels, plus an adjustable, detachable strap and zippered front pocket.
This tote trio series is all about showing how one project can be done multiple ways to create a variety of finished looks. We love the brights colors, custom monogram, and decorative stitching featured on this version.
Our Bright Spot Tote series shows one project done three ways on three different machines. Our basic big, bold design finishes at a generous 16” x 16” x 7” with clean lines and layered structure accented with precise topstitching.
A sleek, soft bag in a traditional curved shape with both carry handles and an adjustable shoulder strap. This “New Classic” has timeless lines but with an upstart edginess that adds just the right infusion of fun.
You might not be traveling far at the moment, but a handsome tote is a wonderful addition to your collection any day! A subtle bit of gorgeous embroidery is the finishing touch that really makes a project your own.
You can’t sit and sew home décor projects all day long. Sometimes you need an exercise break … but not a break from style. We paired a décor…
The front of a bag is a bit like a blank slate. We started with a gorgeous metallic linen, then added a quilted windowpane grid, and finally, arranged twelve tone-on-tone yo-yos as the perfect dimensional accent.
Tall and narrow, but still generous enough to easily hold the tallest of Rieslings and the roundest of Champagne bottles, our fabric wine bags are a fabulous way…
Create a fun, colorful, insulated lunch bag that features a bold monogram clearly stating, “That’s my PB&J, dude… hands off.” We combine a linen-blend solid with a striking quilting cotton on the outside, wipe-clean rip stop inside.
Freshen up for spring outings with a fabulous tote you can use for farmers’ markets, retail therapy or just as a new everyday bag. This is what we call a statement bag. It’s specifically designed to make the best use of a fabric collection’s boldest, brightest colors and motifs.
Spring kicks-off the outdoor events and festivals. Did you know that many venues no longer allow closed totes and bags to be brought in? If you want to carry in a larger bag, they require it to be see-through. Sew4Home to the rescue with a fashionable, functional solution.
Patterns for lightweight, flexible bags that can best replace plastic can be hard to find. Luckily, you’re a clever sewing person and can make your own – with a little help from S4H. Ours are made from two layers of quilting cotton.
A versatile carryall with room to spare. We took inspiration from the heavy duty feed sack fabric of the early 1900s to create a look that’s nostalgically trendy and eye-catching but in a hardworking modern canvas substate.
Making a wonderful bag for yourself or as a gift is a great sense of accomplishment. In this tutorial, we focus on creating a cool tote that’s perfect for beginners: very easy, but also cute and classic.
It snaps closed and opens wide to carry a pair of shoes, a change of clothes, and all the extras you need to get back to your workout routine. The lining is water-resistant ripstop nylon so you can toss in damp items.
Crisp white + pops of color: that’s the plan for Spring. This versatile tote opens wide (full 6” depth) or cinches down to a handy tapered top. The two-part lining pulls up to form a clever drawstring cover, protecting the contents inside.
This is our most popular reusable grocery bag pattern. It’s prettier, safer, and sturdier than the bags you often find in stores. Use a substantial substrate, like a canvas, cotton duck or even an outdoor fabric, which was our choice.
Make a bold fashion statement as you stroll the open air markets of France – or these days, perhaps just the aisles of your local grocer. The generous bag is a perfect blend of unique trim, dramatic fabric, and fussy cutting.
Spring is all about pops of color beginning to show up everywhere, from bulbs blooming to trees flowering. This simple box tote adds eye-catching yarn wrapped handles as well as hand stitched yarn accents as the perfect color pops against a solid canvas background.
Vibrant fabric accents look great against the bright color of the mesh and the gleaming nickel hardware. The mesh body lets sand and dirt sift out while at the same time allowing air to flow in and help dry out suits and towels.
We used barkcloth in bold tropical prints for our dramatic totes, but other mid-to-heavyweight substrates would work too. The generous size makes it perfect as a market shopper, everyday carryall or even a diaper bag alternative.
It earns our Sewing Survival emblem because the construction is fast and easy, but without sacrificing any style! You can make this beautiful bag in an afternoon, learning straight seams, topstitching, and boxed corners.
