10 Bag Patterns for National Handbag Day!

Bag lovers unite! Today is your day!

October 10th is National Handbag day. To celebrate the 10th day of the 10th month we've gathered 10 bag patterns for your crafting pleasure. Keep in mind bags make great gift projects since bags do not require sizing to fit properly as a sweater, socks, or hat do. Maybe make one to use in place of a paper gift bag?
