Rockstar Bag

This is by far my most requested pattern; it is so easy to make and it is the perfect size for everything. It opens up really wide so you can dig for the hard to reach things in the bottom. This purse manages to look professional no matter which fabric I use. It has a small flap at the top with a button closure (which is my favorite part!!!) and has two handles. I suppose i could be convinced to use a magnetic snap instead of the button but I am afraid it just wouldn't be the same. This tote is 12" wide x 9" tall x 4" deep and i would sell this style for $25.

A Taste of Youth Purse

These three purses were made for three special little girls. I made them with such bright colors I feel that any little girl would love them. Of course this style of purse can be made out of any fabric to please anyone (even adults). To show you some variations, the purple and green purses have buttons clasps at the top and the pink one has a decorative button on the front with a magnetic snap inside to close it. This style is a basic square purse that is slightly larger at the top than at the bottom to make it easier to reach the bottom and has two straps that are just long enough to fit over your shoulder. These particular purses only have one interior pocket because they are for young girls but as always I would customize them to order. These purses are 8" tall x 9" wide x 4" deep and i would sell this style for $20.

Pink is not a color that is generally in my vocabulary, so when Katelyn asked for a pink and black purse I wasnt sure where to begin. I wasn't even sure if I knew how to make a pink purse. I had to have my little sister come with me to Patchwork Plus to help pick out the material; as you can tell she did a great job. Even I adore it now that I have seen the finished product. The contrasting colors look so great together. This is a great multipurpose handbag because it has six pockets on the outside (each section of the flowered pattern is a separate pocket) and three interiors pockets including a zipper pocket. The style of purse is about 11" wide x 8" tall x 3" deep and I would sell it for $24.

City Tote

This moderate sized purse is really pretty because of the two toned front and back. The black and white purse features a pocket on the outside secured by a button as well as the inside ones; the green one only has interior pockets. The bottom of this bag is rounded so it has more room inside. It has one 24" strap. This bag is about 11" wide x 9" tall x 3" deep. I would sell this style for $23.

The Stripe Fan Purse

This is a fun purse because it has so many different fabrics and variations. You can have this purse with stripes on the front and a solid pattern on the back or with stripes all the way around. You can also change the order of the fabrics. This purse is also one of my favorites to make because it challenges my lack of creativity; I actually get to decide what i want the finished product to look like. This medium sized purse is rather thin but because of the wide fan shape it still holds a fair amount of stuff. The finished purse is about 13" at the widest x 8" tall and only 1 1/2" deep. I would sell this style purse for $22.

Mom's Fall Purse

I really like the style of this purse; it is elegant yet simple. I first used this pattern when my mom demanded a fall purse (hence the orange one) and really fell in love with it and i have since made many more basically the same. It has a magnetic snap at the top on the inside to keep it closed and can have either a single strap or a double strap This purse is a medium sized purse that is about 10" wide x 7'' tall and 3"deep. I would sell this style purse for $22.

Melissa's Clutch

I made this adorable little clutch as a gift for my pink-obsessed little sister. It is fairly small and features a flap that attaches to a button on the front to close the top. This handbag holds the essentials and not much more... perfect for the woman on the go who likes a small purse. The finished size is about 8" wide x 6" tall x 2" deep. It has a zipper pocket and two open pockets on the inside. I would sell this style clutch for $18.

Large Tote

This is the largest tote i have ever made. The finished bag is approximately 16" tall x 12" wide x 7" deep. This particular bag has 8 pockets that line the interior, a single 35" strap and a flap with a snap to keep it shut. The size of this bag makes it perfect for taking towels and shovels to the beach or for taking toys and a picnic to the park. I would sell this style tote for $32.

Hello, everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to look at the things I have on this site. I am going to post pictures of most of the purses I have made on this blog to give you an idea of the things I can do. If you are looking at this site because someone gave it to you for ideas then keep in mind that these are only the ones I have made and they do not portray what I can do. If you would like to have anything changed all you need to do is specify. Please let me know if you would like a certain size or color or even how many pockets you want and where. If you want long straps or short straps, or you can be like my mother who only likes one strap rather than two all you have to do is say. Also, let me know if you have any specifications about a wallet you would like.
