Okay, I admit it. My closet overflows with bags—backpacks, clutches, totes, you name it! But hey, I’m a sewing enthusiast, and what better way to express my creativity than by crafting my own stylish (and functional) arm candy? Over the years, I’ve accumulated a treasure trove of bag sewing patterns, and a few have truly stolen my heart. Today, I’m spilling the beans on my all-time faves, hoping to inspire your next needle-and-thread adventure!
- Anything by Noodlehead: Anna at Noodlehead is a genius at bag patterns. Anything she has is absolutely worth buying and making!
- The Emerson Crossbody Bag by The Blanket Statement: I’ve wanted to make this crossbody bag for so long now. Hopefully I get a chance soon!
- Perfect Quilted Totes by Elizabeth Hartmann: I’ve made this pattern before and it was so much fun! The resulting tote is sturdy and gorgeous.
- Toddler Backpack by Polkadot Chair: This backpack looks absolutely adorable and makes me wish I had a toddler to make one for!
Remember, these are just a few of the amazing bag sewing patterns out there! The beauty of sewing your own bags is that you can tailor them to your unique style and needs. So grab your fabric, your trusty machine, and get stitching—the perfect bag just waiting to be yours is just a few seams away!
