    looking for SIMPLE quilted purse pattern recommendation.

    Need a pattern for a quilted purse big enough to also hold a 9 inch tablet. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Although you really can't call this one simple, it has a separate compartment area for the tablet, so it may be safer. http://pursepatterns.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=124 My girlfriend made her 3 daughters the bow tuck purse to hold their iPads.

    I have made many that are just plain tote bags of whatever size you want. I never used a pattern. But if you want specifics I can walk you thru it.

    The Professional Tote Pattern is definitely not a quick & easy pattern.

    I make a really nice tote with charm squares but have never had a pattern. Two colors in Batik works very nicely. Just join squares together ..alternating squares. You can make it all one length ...just use as many squares as it takes to get the width and length you want. I sew the exterior body to warm and natural batting and quilt either with feather stitch between squares or straight line quilt whatever you are comfortable with. I then make a lining the same size and quilt it to separate batting. I find double batting gives a nice body to tote. Add a pocket to the interior and a key fob and sew it all together and you are done....sorry don't forget the straps at the top and also a magnetic snap. Almost any tote pattern will help you put it together but it is really simple and pretty fast.

    Here's a link to my board on Pinterest. Maybe you'll find something there.

    I've prequilted the fabric, then cut out a tote bag, an easy one with no gussets. fast and simple
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thanks, everyone. I never knew there was so many patterns out there - maybe when I retire fully I will be more aware. I have seen two or three that I think I will try over the next few weeks. Thanks so much for the input!
