I must admit, one of the reasons I wanted to learn to sew was to make my own purses and bags. (Luckily, as an editor of AllFreeSewing, I get to see a lot of free sewing patterns.) Honestly, every time I go to the bag section of a store there are always so many options and yet nothing that fits exactly what I am looking for.
You will find a bag that’s the perfect color but the wrong size. Or the perfect size but without the right number of pockets or strap length. It goes on and on, which is why learning to make your own bags is such a delight

I’ll share a few of my favorite bags from this AllFreeSewing library of patterns to get you started.
The Petite Coin Purse Patterns shown above are super cute and fun to personalize. I’ve made them using favorite fabrics and stitched a little picture or image on each.
Remona’s Reversible Tote Bag above is so awesome. It’s perfect for when you have two fabric designs you love but aren’t sure which one you want to use for your next bag. Plus, this is big enough to hold what you need but not overly bulky.
I cannot remember a time without this Stylish Insulated Lunch Bag. It’s so convenient! I use this for my lunch every day, and it has never let me down. Everything stays cold and protected from the elements.
How could you resist this adorable Whimsical Woodlands DIY Backpack? It’s ideal for children of all ages and can easily be adjusted for adults. Add in your preferred pockets and use a fabric pattern you love.
I use this 10-Minute Messenger Bag all the time! It’s a great size, easy to handle, and it’s super cute, too. We even have a video tutorial to help you master this design quickly.
We’re so excited to share our Free Bag Sewing Patterns Directory with you and hope that you enjoy finding your next to-do project for your sewing list.
