After moving to Chicago this summer, I’ve been looking forward to attending all of the upcoming events and creating some quick crafts. However, lately, I’ve been experiencing the problem of having a lot of stuff. Since I’ve been exploring the museums like the Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum, I usually have my hands full of maps of the downtown area, copies of the transportation schedules, souvenirs, and my camera. As a result, some of my maps have blown away from me, and I’m always frantically looking for my phone because I forget to carry a bag. Call me a tourist, but I like to experience all that is offered!
I know I’m not the only one who often leaves their purse at home. So, I’ve compiled a list of bag patterns from AllFreeSewing that you can easily sew at home, and they’re perfect for all of my beginner sewist friends.
