If you're in the mood for some weekend sewing, take one of these free purse and pouch tutorials for a spin:
Ruffled pouches with decorative stitching at See Kate Sew (yup, those black and white patterns are THREAD.)
See-through vinyl pouch at Bonjour Quilts
DIY backpack from Petit a Petit & Family
Oilcloth pool tote with mesh pocket by Sewbon
Patchwork pencil case from A Spoonful of Sugar
Foldover tote at The Sewing Rabbit
Have fun! I'll be working on some curtains for our guest room this weekend. Unless I decide to spray paint some stuff. Or concoct wall art. Or pick up some patio furniture. Or shop for light fixtures.
