Default 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!

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.
