Monday Motivation 16 Free Bag Patterns

Welcome back to Monday Motivation! The one and only place to be on the one day of the week that everyone dreads! Time to turn that beginning of the work week frown upside down and dive into inspirational posts, by joining Natalie Santini and me for weekly roundups of projects that will get you TOTALLY jazzed for the week!

Are you feeling it this week?

The daylight hours are becoming longer (get ready to SPRING forward on 08 March), the buds on the trees have started, and a few daffodils are showing off their blooms! And in places like Wisconsin, the snow is even melting (a little).

Spring is right around the corner (thank goodness)! The change of seasons is the perfect time to also make a new stylish bag (or three) to add a pop of color to your warmer weather outfit.

This week is a collection of 16 fabulous bag patterns that are completely free (you favorite 4 letter F word)!

This week we are going to add links to reputable sourcing for bag hardware and faux leather for bag making. These are not affiliate links rather a way for you to find what you need if you are unsure of the quality some shops provide or have no local shops where you can find these items. 

For bag hardware, zippers, and notions, Emmaline Bags offers an incredible variety and also has lovely customer service. The quality is unsurpassed! Janelle also provides how-to tutorials and videos on how to install bag hardware so you will be able to do it right the very first time!
