15 Practical but Pretty Purse Sewing Patterns

When I first started searching for purse sewing patterns, I ended up confused. I'm from Australia, and to me, a purse is like a wallet and contains both coins and paper money, and a million plastic cards (drivers' license, credit cards, loyalty cards etc). Wallets are for men, purses are for women. Coin purses are small pouches with a zip or clasp, used for storing coins.

But then I discovered some in the USA call any women's bag a purse (what I would call a handbag or shoulder bag). So which patterns should I share?

Well, why not share my favourite patterns of all of them (and if you can't find what you're looking for here, search more purse/handbag sewing patterns here.) Read more about 15 Practical but Pretty Purse Sewing Patterns

How to create your own digital sewing pattern library (and search it too!)

Do you have a growing collection of sewing patterns that you struggle to keep track of? Maybe you’ve bought a sewing pattern and then realised you already own something similar.  Or you want to sew a pattern that you bought ages ago (on sale, right?), but you can’t for the life of you remember the name of it, let alone find the pdf file on your computer.

Today, I’m going to show you how to use Threadistry to create a searchable library of the sewing patterns you own. No more losing track of those pattern purchases.

Fabulous felt doll sewing patterns for everyone

Store-bought dolls these days are so blegh! Over-the-top make-up, unrealistic body shapes, and ridiculous clothing - not what I want my little girl to aspire to.

I'd much rather sew felt dolls for my kids (yes, my son has felt dolls too!). They have such simplicity and character, and are perfect for little kids to play with. I just about squealed in delight when I discovered this store on Etsy: Read more about Fabulous felt doll sewing patterns for everyone
