The first tutorial I used was the Buttercup Bag pattern from Made By Rae. I enlarged the pattern using the instructions in this post and I left off the button tab - I just sewed the buttons on to the outer layer. I also added some extra pockets on the inside. I also made the strap adjustable.
The second tutorial I used was the Gathered Clutch tutorial from Noodlehead. I must admit, I did find the zipper tabs in this tutorial a little tricky to do (my zipper foot and I don't get along very well) but I managed it in the end. I also added an extra pocket on the inside again (you can never have too many pockets in a handbag - well, that's what I think anyway)
These were quite quick and simple (well, except for the zip tabs) to make - I managed to make these over a couple of days while the kids were either eating or sleeping. I'll have to make some for myself now!
