Carry your stuff in style with the projects in Quilted Purses &Totes. From the office to your favorite lunch spot to a casual party, this book of 10 patterns has you covered. Save yourself a trip to the department store and make your own purse, tote, lunch bag, or clutch. 

All of the designs in this collection are so lovely that it's difficult to pick just one. Luckily, these projects are as inexpensive as they are easy. If I had to choose one to start today, it would be the Poppy Purse. This design features a bold floral graphic that looks gorgeous against a deep blue background. Though this tutorial involves wool appliqué, Quilted Purses & Totes breaks down the technique and makes it accessible to beginners.

For everyday use, I love the Hippy Swing Bag. This crossbody purse fits a wallet, cell phone, and keys as well as a book or eReader. The ruffled fabric on the front adds a fun flair to this versatile bag. Quilted Purses & Totes includes 8 additional projects including:

  • Quick Clutch Purse – When you just need the essentials
  • Evergreen Business Tote
  • Orange Blossoms at the Cabin – Precious button closures
  • Flower Pop Tote – Great for little girls
  • Fun Folded Flap Bag Super stash-buster!
  • New Narrows Tote
  • Brown Baggin It
  • Grocery Tote – Save a tree with a reusable bag.


With Quilted Purses & Totes, you can make a fashion statement and show off your sewing skills at the same time. This book contains patterns for bags in various sizes and styles. Give each project a personal touch by choosing your own fabric and embellishments–just be prepared when your friends ask where you got your fabulous bag!
