Free Beach Tote Bag Pattern
This free Tote Bag pattern will keep you looking classy and professional, your friends will be amazed that you made it rather than bought it from the mall.

The sewing pattern comes with very detailed step-by-step photograph instructions, and there is also two tutorial videos. It is a sewing project that takes time and care but is suitable for all sewing abilities.
Handy hint: Why not make it a more hip bag with black and grey canvas and chain-links instead of rope handles.

Free Rag Doll Sewing Pattern
Every little girl wants a rag doll. This one is ideal for small hands as the arms and legs are easy to grip. But remember, if you are making it for very small people then make sure everything is sewn on well so that nothing can be pulled off and accidentally swallowed.
This rag doll sewing pattern is quite straightforward as it is made from very basic shapes, such as rectangles rolled to form cylinders. The free downloadable pattern comes with step-by-step instructions illustrated with photographs.
You can use any type of fabric for the doll and its apron. As an extra gift, why not sew an apron for the owner of the doll from the same fabric (see how to sew an apron for a video guide).
