Sam makes a quick and easy handmade bag, a purse that is easy to sew.

Samantha made and designed this bright and colorful hand bag. Here's some suggestions for a quick and easy way to add a pocket and strips of ribbon to a bag.

Here's an easy way to embellish a bag that you are sewing, an idea for your next DIY purse project.

Once the bag shape has been cut out, cut strips of ribbon to go on the bag where you want them. Place them on the pretty side of the front bag piece. Make sure your strips go over to the edge or beyond the edge. Zigzag across the center of each strip to hold them in place. Then make a self lined patch pocket to add on to the front piece.

Quick and easy straps can be made using the tri-fold technique.
