Does anyone have a good pattern for a rag quilt purse. My daughter in law is wanting me to make one for her. I have made a rag quilt, but have not tried this with a purse. I am the type of person who needs to have step by instructions the first time that I make something.
Thanks,
chamby

I saw another one while web surfing last week, but of course, I can't find it now. I'll keep looking.

I loved your rag quilt in another post. I had some questions which were (1) what size squares did you use, (2) what kind of batting did you use and (3)were these cotton squares. I purchased a rag quilt square purse from and internet site. It was made from 5" charm squares and consisted of (on one side) 2 rows of 3 blocks; the ends were 2 squares each; the bottom was a row of 3 squares. The handles are about 2" wide and they are ragged as well and each about 20" long. If I had a camera I would take a picture, but I don't. I really believe since you have already done a rag quilt you could figure out how to do it without any problem. I haven't tried Googling "raggedy square purse" but you might find some instructions that way. You could use more blocks to make a larger purse but what I have described is really large enough. If you have any questions I would be glad to try and help. In the meantime, if you could answer my questions above I would appreciate it. Thanks. Dixie in Alabama

This is just like mine except mine is only 2 squares high, not three. The technique seems to be the same. I think you could adapt this to any size you want.
