Free Purse Patterns

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!

I'm looking for a patter to make a purse from an old pair of denim jeans. Any help is appreciated.

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!

There are tons of tutorials at Craftster. Take a look at the "Jordy" bag.

By DeAnna01/23/2006

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:

Hope this helps,
