I had a lot of fun putting this collection together, there are so many lovely and creative designs in this bunch. Some are a little fancy while others are nice and simple, some zipped, some snap shut while others squeeze open and closed. Most are sewing tutorials but I do have a couple crochet patterns listed too. Enjoy!
