The Rachel Tote By Tuesday Nights Sewing

Melissa at Tuesday Nights Sewing will release her newest bag pattern, Rachel, today.  It's a lovely small tote bag, perfect for carrying your device and some files.  It's going to be my summer professional development classes bag.  It was my first real experience using vinyl, and I loved it!  I'm going to have to add more vinyl to my stash.  The directions and pattern are very easy to follow and it's short and a pretty quick sew.  I was able to complete it in three evenings of cutting and sewing, it could easily be completed in half a day.

Be sure to head to Tuesday Nights Sewing this afternoon to get your copy of the Rachel Tote Bag!

Aurora Crossbody

I had the privilege of testing the Aurora Crossbody bag for Tuesday Nights Sewing.  The best news is that this pattern is a freebie from Melissa of Tuesday Nights Sewing. It's a great little bag with a large pocket on the outside under the flap closure and two inside pockets.  The strap is adjustable.  My daughters loved it and it was just perfect for them.  I think this is a great bag for when you need something small.  It would be perfect for a tween or teen.

You can get a full written tutorial on the Aurora Crossbody bag here and you can download the pattern for free at craftsy here.

Here is my finished bag:
