With the fabric bag patterns you can whip up totes for yourself and friends in a snap.

Quilted Purse Patterns: Pretty Purses by Melanie Testa

Pattern #1

Pretty Purses by Melanie Testa

Here's a quick and easy idea for gifts—quilted purses. Each one you create is more fun than the next. And because they're made from a quilted sandwich, there are numerous options for personalizing them. Melanie starts with one of her wholecloth painted fabrics and free-motion quilts it to enhance the painted design. However, you can use any fabrics for your own quilted purse patterns!

Quilted Handbags: Classic Evening Bags (blue, yellow and purple) by Susan Brubaker Knapp

Patterns #2, #3, #4

Classic Evening Bags (blue, yellow and purple) by Susan Brubaker Knapp

These quilted purse patterns make great accessories, as you can construct them in any fabric to match your holiday ensemble, whether it's funky or elegant, artsy or casual. Add surface design elements to dress up your bag, or go without and keep it simple and speedy. Then choose from a long strap (for a ), a short one, or none at all.

Handmade Bags Patterns: Mini Messenger Bag by LuAnne Hedblom

Pattern #5

Mini Messenger Bag by LuAnne Hedblom

The mini messenger quilted tote bag featured here is a quick and simple project. However, you may need to print your inkjet collage a day ahead of sewing to allow sufficient time for the ink to dry, depending on which type of inkjet cotton quilt sheet you use.


Quilted Bag: Easy and Elegant Quilted Bag by Linda & Laura Kemshall

Pattern #6

Easy & Elegant Quilted Bag by Linda & Laura Kemshall

If you're a lover of gorgeous stitched, quilted bags but the thought of constructing one seems daunting, this might be just the answer you need. This embellished, triangular bag is inspired by the traditional, tribal hanging bags of India. They have the simplest possible pattern, meaning that after you have enjoyed creating the handmade appliqué, embroidery, quilting, and embellishment, they can be constructed in no time.


Quilted Tote Bag: Artful Eco Bag by Kelli Nina Perkins

Pattern #7

Artful Eco Bag by Kelli Nina Perkins

We've all become more aware of the impact of plastic grocery bags on the environment, and the kindest thing we can do is to replace them with a reusable alternative. Everyone from moms to students can appreciate these little bags, with lots of room for groceries, library books, or art supplies. You can whip them up in no time, so plan to make a few for yourself as well. The best part is that you can roll them up and tuck them into your purse or glove box, so they're always handy for impromptu market strolls. If they get soiled, pop them in the washing machine and they're ready for the next trip.
