Between the Lines
Tip #1: Make scissor cutting easier by wiping the lint build-up from your scissor blades with a
clean, soft cloth after every few cuts. Your scissors will cut more smoothly and you’ll experience
less hand fatigue.

Tip #2: When sewing items from denim or other bulky fabrics, consider cutting any facings from
a lighter weight fabric in order to reduce bulk.
Make purses and bags with this collection of over 400 purse and handbag patterns & tutorials collected from all over the
web – sew hobo bags, messenger bags, clutch bags, evening bags, zippered pouches, coin purses and more!

And if you’re a beginner just learning how to sew, a purse or handbag can be a great first sewing project. Just be sure to
choose a design with simple shapes and not too much detail. And making a purse can also be a great way to use up fabric
scraps left over from other projects (especially the smaller coin purses or zippered pouches, which take very little fabric).
You can even try piecing smaller scraps of fabric together into one larger piece, creating a colorful patchwork design.

And if you have a few pairs of denim jeans lying around that you no longer wear (maybe they no longer fit or the style
doesn’t suit you anymore), there are several purse designs on these pages that use old jeans, allowing you to
recycle/upcycle them into something you can use (just remember to use a thicker needle when sewing through denim).

And If you don’t see the exact purse design you’re looking for on these pages, try the
Free Tote Bag Patterns section.
Many of the tote bag designs on these pages can easily be used as handbags. Sometimes all you have to do is shorten
the handle.
