These bags totes purses are fantastic,the variety is great,you can have one for every day of the year.They are beautiful some easy to make.

I'd love to make the Amy Butler Blossom Bag, but unable to download and print the pattern /

I would love to make the Amy Butler shoulder bag.... but no matter what I do, the photos will not download. I get the yellow pages with text, but no pictures, no pattern pages.

I use a canvas shoulder bag. I love big bags.

i love hobo bags

I love these patterns. They are well written and are attractive. I am looking forward to making some of these.

where i can download this pattern ? i can not see

I usually use large handbags which I can carry around a lot of stuff because I am a fashion designing student and have taje a lot of stuff to my class every day. So I made myself a pleated tote and something I saw from one of a youtube video. So yah! I like huge spacious bags.

I quit carrying a purse a long time ago. Now I use a small zippered pouch that will fit into my jean's front pocket. It holds my driver's license, credit card and a few folded up bills. This is the most secure I have found. I really don't need all of that junk that I used to carry around, and now I have 2 hands free and my back doesn't hurt from carrying around all that weight on my shoulder. If we are traveling through an airport, then I will carry the biggest tote that will fit under the seat or in the overhead bin.

A big orange shoulder bag.

I'm using a shoulder bag of my own design. Grey wool blend with asymmetrical flap and pocket on the outside and a wild purple, teal and grey print lining.

I use a leather shoulder purse with out side zippers and pockets inside.

Denim bag I made, has cross over strap.

Most of the time I use a small wallet style purse with a shoulder strap for easy caring while shopping.

For some reason my comment isn't showing up! Will try again. I usually carry a 2 pocket purse that I love to make. However after the last one wore out, I haven't found new fabrics that catch my eye. So am currently carrying a store bought one. Gasp!

I usually carry a 2pocket purse that I make, but after the last one wore out, I have been at a loss to find new fabric combos that catch my attention. So I am currently carrying a store bought purse. Gasp!

I made a tote purse from blue jeans legs with a carhart pocket t-shirt liner. Fast, easy, and shabby-chic.

a big zippered tote bag especially if I'm carrying a lot of stuff

a not too big felted wool crossbody messenger bag

a not too big felted wool crossbody messenger bag

I use a leather shoulder bag with zipper pockets inside and out.

I use a regular leather purse with a strap that goes across my body. It has enough compartments to hold all I need for the day.

Every day my go to is a clutch purse, but when I want to zazzle up an outfit I use my very sparkles drawstring purse =)

Some days I use a tote that my daughter made me, but for work I use a regular ol' purse.

Leather. ALWAYS leather.... -)

I'm using the "Classy Striped Tote Bag" that I made with the pattern on this site. Love, love, love it.

I love using structured totes!

Mine is a bucket type that I made

I currently have a leather crossbody. But i typically use a purse or bag that I have made. I love designing and making bags and tote. Pretty much a bag lady. Annie Wiederstein

Mine is a large, brown hobo style with a strap that is long enough to carry over my shoulder.

My everyday is a shoulder bag in which I put a couple of extra sections. I don't like a purse that is just one hole, everything goes to the bottom and is unorganized.

I use a large zippered tote which I designed and made myself. It is black vinyl with a tan band around the center. The band has an embroidered NFL Saints logo on it and is wide enough to form outside pockets. The inside has a zippered pocket and also 2 card pockets. The straps are sewn from the bottom of the bag to the top and have a drop of about 20 inches.

Honestly, I only use a 2.5 x 3 wallet that fits in my pocket. But, since my friends and family love and use all sizes and shapes of purses and totes, I have a large collection of patterns that I make as gifts. I like making grocery totes for personal use and cutting down on plastic grocery bags.

In all honesty, I use a 2.5" x 3" wallet that fits in my pocket. All of my friends and family love every size and shape of purses possible so as a result, I have a large collection of patterns that I use as custom gifts. My personal favorites are grocery/shopping totes to use in place of plastic grocery bags.

I have a medium sized double strap shoulder bag. There is a small snapped pocket on the side, where I keep my keys. The purse is packed to the max. )

I use a nice leather shoulder bag. It holds my kindle and all basic necessities and still looks good.

I will make the coin purses! I have lots of FREE fabric to sew make them! I obtained the "free" fabric from local upholstery shops. Instead of throwing their discontinued sample books in the trash, they give them to me!

I would make the pleated pouch. I printed this pattern quite a while ago and it's still on my to do list. I think I'll move it up as I really do love the design.

Love the one hour bag....that is my kind of project!

I would like to try the Classy Striped Tote Bag!

I have made lots of these bags and purses. I love the t-shirt to sling bag and lots of the totes. Love this site to get these ideals from. Thank you.

I LOVE all kinds of bags and would make several of these shown. But I have to say I would definitely make the Mini Backpack Coin Purse and Key Chain - it is adorable and could be very handy...

Japanese Rice Bag

I would make the buttercup purse and it is just the perfect size for the coin purse keychain (which I have made as gifts for family for Christmas) to make up in the same fabric to go with it!!!

I would make the Buttercup Purse. Looks just my size.

I have made the buttercup one; it came out very nice.

The placemat clutch just gave me some great ideas - I've already made a small bag from some woven placemats that I added a magnet and really like.

I make bags all the time , but would love to try the dotty embroidered tote!!! They all look like fun.

I would make the clutch since it's almost time for some formal wear it's the easiest to match with :)

I have made the Blossom Bag before and would make it again! I love your site for getting purse, bag, and tote patterns. You are the best!

Hi, I love all the purse patterns I have seen here but the one that I would love to make first is the #1 shown, The med. one in the light green frabic. I have never made a purse yet so please let this one be my first. Thank you

I have made the one hour bag and it certainly is. I would like to make the bag in the upper right corner.

The Adorable Fabric Bag, would be pretty in many different colors and such a nice handy size.

I have made several gathered clutches. Everyone seems to like them. The Noodlehead tutorial is awesome. I would like to make the buttercup bag next.

Adorable Fabric Purse is my choice to make.

20 minute tote

I would love to try make Dotty Embroidered Tote.

I think I would like to start out doing one of the tote bags as my experience is not that high yet on general sewing. Would be nice to start with something simple!

I like the Blossom Shoulder bag.

I'll likely make the 20 minute tote to start.

I would definitely sew the 5 step market tote it looks nice and roomy and multifunctional.I think it would also be great to make for gifts for my friends.

I like them all. I would probably start out with the one hour bag.

Love the One hour Bag!!! (But I just may try them all!

Pleated tote. It's lovely!

So many to like. But I would choose the Canvas Beach Bag. In fact, I've already made 2!

Hobo Dance Bag sounds like this weekend's project!

Really hard to choose-I like so many. The Buttercup bag is very cute
