I would like to make a couple of purses for my 12 year old grandaughter. Does anyone know of free online patterns for purses for young teens? Thank you for any help you can give me with this!

Just type in" Free Purse Patterns" in your search engine block and I am sure you will get alot of sites to vist. I found all kinds Good Luck Seamstress
There's several patterns (or links to patterns) for various kinds of purses -- example: Capri Sun or Koolaid Pack Purses and Placemat Purses on this site or you can post a request if there's some specific pattern you are searching for here:
BlueBonnet Crafters Board:
Hope this helps,
There are tons of tutorials at Craftster. Take a look at the "Jordy" bag.
the craftster.org site is great, thanks so much for sharing! I have started to make my own purses because the ones in the stores are so expensive and I have always had to settle for what I wanted! Thanks, SEW ON!
