Sara from Sew Sweetness, and author of Big City Bags, has a free bag pattern for you. It’s her Arabesque Bag. The shape is simple, requiring only 3 hours to sew up. It still has nice finishes, though, with a zippered top and full lining and interior pockets. The simple lines make it a blank canvas for piecing and embellishing, as she did with gorgeous ribbons. Go to Sew Sweetness to get the free pattern.
