I cant sownload the Sewing Bags Tutorials Youll Love 15 Free Purse Sewing Patterns eBook. So sad!

I have just downloaded the 15 purses and bags tutorial book, but in the requirements for "Not Just Another Pretty Bag" there is a list of PDF patterns to download. When I click on any of these my computer shows an error message and can't find the page. Help!!

Thank you so much for making this Sewing Bags Tutorial available, and it is free too! The patterns are lovely, very detailed and easy to follow and there are at least 4 that I want to make today, lol! The messenger bag using various different fabrics is just beautiful and is going to be a perfect gift for a special friend with a birthday coming up soon.

Looks fun. Thank you very kind of you to share. Have a wonderful day!

Thanks for the free ebook. :)

Thank you for your obvious love of the subject and kindness to share your knowledge and creativity so freely. x

For the "Not Just Another Pretty Purse" pattern, two links are incorrect as given in your PDF. PDF 1, PDF 5, and the instructions all have the link going to PDF 5, which is obviously incorrect. The designer's blog gives the correct links on this page: The following are the correct links: PDF 1: Instructions:

Moderators: The DIY Envelope Clutch should not even be in this collection. The designer is selling the pattern for $6.00, which IMO, is nowhere near free. mudchickie 5641299: If my suspicions are anywhere close to the truth, the embroidery hoops become the bag handle...

There are at least two errors in the pattern of the swim bag. I have not read through all of the others except to skim to see if any of them call for embroidery hoops. None do. In the materials section of this pattern (swim bag) it doesn't mention a T-shirt or embroidery hoops but the First step says to cut a piece of the T-shirt you are using for the main bag and to round the hem but cutting up the side approx. 5 inches. Then Step 4 (none of the other steps are numbered) says to wrap each of the two embroidery hoops in wide ribbon (no ribbon in materials list). As an experienced seamstress as well as the novice can follow the pattern instructions with no problem. I just wanted to let you know about these errors so you could tell me where the embroidery hoops come in if at all. Otherwise an awesome idea book for the best!

thank you so much

Hello, Under the heading of Sewing Bag Tutorial's & Free Purse Sewing Patterns in this issue, it shows that there should be a tutorial for a messenger bag. I do not see that particular tutorial. Help , please. Cee

Love this site, so much information. Really cute ideas. Thanks from a long time sewer that just can't seem to come up with new ideas.


Everything here is great, but I would like to see a list of materials,like what size zipper & how much material for the items

I love!

WOW thank you so much =) i am new to sewing i know the basics and can do some minor stuff. i was so suprised that i knew so much more then i even thought. fie wasnt corrupt at all quick, free and easy ty ty ty

muchisimas gracias =D

Gracias, por darnos l oportunidad de realizar nuestras ideas, aprovechando las suyas.. Me gusta elaborar bolsos de manos (carteras) y cojines para muebles con diferentes disenos.

I had a hard time downloading the file. But I kept trying all the links on each page until one was not corrupted. I haven't used it as of yet. But can't wait!

Adoro su pgina, siempre llena de buenas ideas. Especialmente me gusta todo lo referente a bolsas en tela, monederos, neceseres, flores en tela, bordados. Muchas gracias por el libro, lo descargu fcil y es maravilloso.

This would be nice, if the file weren't completely corrupted and impossible to download.

I had no problems downloading the file.

I had no issues.

Thank you..............

Thank you so much, I have tried many times to make times to make drawstring bags, sometimes successfully, most times a tacky thanks for this...fab

Fabulous! Thank you.

I am still wondering if this is really free

I give this website an A.The ideas and patterns are wonderful and I have enjoyed all the projects available.!!!!!

Just downloaded the ebook and saw the projects. Can't wait to get started! Great ideas! Thanks!

I have can not down load any of these e-books and can find no where else to tell you. I can d/l from anywhere BUT allfreesewing,.com, this is new as I have d/l'ed things from you before. Can you please look in to it or help me somehow?

The link for the complete, correct Not Just Another Pretty Purse pattern is Cheers!! Cal

Good job on the eBook! I have managed to download all five correct pattern pages for the Not Just Another Pretty Purse. I have taken the liberty of assembling the pages into a single PDF with each page properly rotated. I was not able to locate the Instructions file. I would be happy to add that file to the front of the pattern pages, if anyone can get me the link for the correct file. Cal


I also found the same error if it's an error. There was no pattern number one. I haven't yet started to sew with the patterns yet, that should come hoping this week. Maybe it's the same pattern with a different twist to it all.just thought I'd let you know. Thanks for going to all the trouble to make up these PFD's For us all.Linda

I agree with the last post: Purse 1, 5, & Instructions are all identical (on pockets).

I like the e-book but the info for Not Just Another Pretty Purse are missing. If you try to download the PDFs and instrutions. One there is not instructions it another pdf 5 and you don't get pdf 1. Just another of 5. Pls help

Nice presentation. For a free tutorial....not bad.

Good deal


Nice idea of free patterns but there seems to be a problem with your pdf files. Everytime I open it it shuts down the page.

muchas gracias por la informacin

Thank you very much, maybe I now can get some peace with the sewing machine:)

thank you

I was so happy to get this book!!!Thanks!!!!

Pretty good bag patterns. I was surprised by the variety.

Looking for pattern for a bag to attach to my mobility scooter.

This tutorial might be great for your mobility scooter, with a little adjustment: It's designed for a stroller and I erroneously first thought you were using a walker, so now that I realize my mistake, there may be more adjustment needed. Good luck with your project -- I bet if you can make a successful scooter bag, you could sell to a hungry market of scooter users!!
