    Purse Makers....what is your favorite go to pattern?

    For those who make purses which pattern is your favorite and why? Is it the design, ease of instructions or something else?

    I tend to make my own patterns. Decide the size you want and any design features. Lazy girl and studiokat both make easy to follow patterns.

    I made my own. I like it because it's very easy. Has pockets on the inside and I've sold a bunch!

    Wise words from my 7 year old niece: "Aunt Laura, you must think you can't have too much fabric like a pizza can't have too much cheese." Well said, Gracie!

    I make several. Mostly ones like this. It has pockets and uses the exact size of fabric I get from a place that recycles designer fabric. http://sdmikke.blogspot.com/2009/03/...e-pattern.html
    I also like this one, because its easy, has lots of pockets and its so pretty. http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/2z2PCv...-bag-patterns/

    I made a few bow tucks, and seems everyone that sees them loves them and wants one. I have a few other patterns I want to try for a change..hopefully this weekend, if I do not get any orders to make.

    I have made several tote bags of my own design. I have bought a couple of patterns that turned me off because the directions were not very clear. I don't have much patience with poorly written directions.

    I use my own pattern and vary it depending on who I am making it for and what the purpose of the bag is.
