Sometimes you just don’t need masses of equipment, yards and yards of fabric and expensive supplies or interfacing to create a great looking bag. Take the Lauren bag for example. It’s smart, stylish, simple and takes just a yard of fabric. This example even has a recycled leather handle from another old bag, although of course you can add a new one or make a fabric strap for it too. Even the pattern is free to download.
