    Default Concealed Weapons Purse Tutorial

    I was wondering if anyone could direct me on how to make a Concealed Weapons purse. I had ordered The Guardian pattern, but it was too many pieces and too confusing for me. I've checked youtube and can't seem to find anything. If anyone has made one and would like to share their knowledge, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Looking at the pictures of concealed weapons purses, I'd say you might be better off buying one. I decided to make a copy of a Vera Bradley purse and realized it's worth paying Vera Bradley prices. It's difficult and the fabric costs also. Plus your time is valuable.

    There's a lady on Etsy that has turning any purse pattern into a concealed weapon purse. I'd check this out. It looks like you can apply this tutorial to any purse. Good luck! http://www.etsy.com/listing/96298698...ial?ref=market

    This is a bag that I designed and jokingly referred to as a concealed carry bag. The pocket on the front goes all the way across and can be accessed from either side. I use it for my keys.

    Sarah, did you try searching the old posts here? I know that was discussed at some length and as I recall several patterns or links were shared. Good luck and if you find a good one please share it with me!

    I found a pattern for a quilted concealed weapons purse at this site: http://patternpile.com/sewing-patter...ndbag-pattern/. Don't know if this is what you are looking for but hope this helps.

    Well, Kat of StudioKat Designs, who designed the Guardian purse pattern, has pictures of some of the steps in the making of the purse. I just finished sewing her Baggalista purse, and I found the extra pictures of the steps very helpful. Here is the page on which you can find photos of steps in the sewing of the Guardian purse. http://www.studiokatdesigns.com/products/guardian If you have questions, go directly to the source. Kat is very quick to respond to emails, and she will answer any question you have. It might be helpful to have your own photos to send to her so that she can identify the problem. She spends many hours in designing her purses. So, don't give up on the Guardian, don't try to find other patterns. Work with what you have. These StudioKat purses are wonderfully designed, and Kat is wonderful in helping you along the way.
