Here’s a simple stylish totally unisex wallet with lots of options to customize it to suit your personal needs. And to help you make it there’s a full video tutorial included.

The Sigma Build-a-Wallet pattern is your chance to design your own wallet. The designer has included instructions for each part of the wallet with particular parts that you can mix and match to create a totally unique wallet that’s perfect for you.

2) Barcelona Backpack by The Folk Art Factory
You NEED a great backpack. It is actually vital! It has to have plenty of pocket options and it doesn’t need to be too big – you are not walking the Appalachian Trail (well I am guessing here but I feel pretty safe in the assumption). More likely you are grabbing something as you race out the door and you need to trust that it will get you through the day. Or you are doing a walk around your city and you want to tote your lunch plus a few essentials. This is the backpack that you need. It is not too large but it has everything and it is easy to use. Let’s totally DO this!

3) The Showcaser in two styles by Moments by Liz
The Showcaser is the perfect bag to show off those machine embroidery blocks, pre-printed panels, weaving, or large prints. Got a piece of a gorgeous fabric that is too small to use on its own? Show it off as the feature panel on these bags, with two different style options.The pattern comes in two sizes, a comfortable Crossbody bag (an iPad fits) or a lovely large tote with an optional shoulder strap. Both bags have a recessed top zipper to keep everything nice and safe, as well as an interior zipper pocket and two pleated pockets. If those are not enough you can add the optional Exterior Hidden Pocket.

4) Flora Supply Case in 3 sizes by Clover & Violet
When you are out and about or travelling isn’t it great to have a quality accessory to carry and organise all your crafty or planner supplies. This fabulous designer has made the “Flora Supply Case” pattern to meet your needs and she has made it in three different sizes – small, medium and large. So we’ve got you covered no matter what you need to carry.

The small and medium cases have two fabric pockets, two mesh pockets, and a pencil pouch in the centre. While the large case has two additional fabric pockets. Everything is secured with a zipper around the outer edge.

Of course, you can mix and match or design your own pockets to carry just what you need. These can be great for medical supplies or a small first aid kit too.

5) New Tote On The Block by Toriska
Here is the sewing pattern for The New Tote on the Block tote bag that comes in two sizes, small and large, with several design variations.

The pattern is simple to put together and comes with several color blocking variations – hence it’s name. You can basically break up the main body of this bag in different ways to color block it left and right, top and bottom, or not at all. Maybe even make your own color block designs or mix and match with prints and solids.

There are also instructions for seven different types of pockets so that you can get just the right pocket configuration inside and out.

6) Round Fabric Baskets in 3 sizes by AppleGreen Cottage
Every home needs to sew these pretty fabric storage baskets with drawstring closures. And with this sewing pattern, three sizes come as standard.

The Round Fabric Basket pattern is a pattern that is versatile, multi-sized and practical. These round fabric baskets all feature a drawstring top and can be used for at-home storage or on the go travel protection. They also make pretty gift bags for your handmade crafts.

The designer has thought of many different uses for her Round Fabric Baskets. You can use them for home decor, craft and sewing supplies storage, a cosmetics bag, kids toy bags, they’d be handy in the nursery, in the bathroom or in the guest room, make them into gift bags and lots more.

7) Serena Saddlebag by Sew Sofia
A classic bag everyone needs in their wardrobe. A versatile design which works well with a combination of different fabrics. We love the optional clip-on short carrying handle which converts this crossbody or shoulder bag into a snazzy handbag.

The Serena Saddle Bag is a classic, D-shape saddle bag with a modern twist! Aimed at the confident beginner, this bag pattern will teach you a range of useful bag-making techniques, with plenty of scope to add your own style.  The optional piping around the pretty shape of the flap emphasises the cool curves of this classy purse.

14) Sleepover Tote by Gingercake Patterns
The designer of this pattern made this beautiful handmade Sleep Over Tote Bag for her own kids. 

As she says – “As my kids grow older, our weekends are filled with soccer games and piano lessons, baseball tournaments and birthday parties, afternoons with grandma and spend the nights with friends and cousins. We really needed something to tote all this stuff around. Somethings kids could pack themselves and close up tight so things were not misplaced and forgotten. Something that would look great stuffed to the brim or with just a few special items in it. The solution, a Sleep Over Tote Bag”.

This bag is perfect for sleepovers but also for carrying all sorts of other things both for your kids or for yourself. You can see that it will work great for picnics and beach excursions as well. It is a large and sturdy bag but not big and bulky. It works perfectly for weekend travel and stores easily when not in use. The Sleep Over Tote Bag is simple to make but has lovely professional details like special handles, drawstring closure, and large interior pockets.

15) Jaymee Clutch by Cambria Court Designs
What a fabulous sewing pattern this is for the Jaymee Clutch Purse, with optional wristlet strap. Any person who has basic sewing skills can complete this bag and be proud of the result. The designer calls it a beginner plus project.

She has added cutting directions for an optional wristlet strap and a superb card section and pocket for the interior. This means if you purchase this pattern you will have three options. The Jaymee Clutch can be made without the wristlet or the card slots. So if you’re a beginner, try the clutch purse first then once you see how easy it is to sew, add the card slot and wristlet for your next purse.

16) Travel Collection Project Bag by TKS Kreates
The Travel Collection Bag was designed with the intention of collecting the materials for a specific project, that is why there is a “label” section at the top and a note pad at the sides so you can keep track of the project within the bag, and also all the items in there and the items you still need to collect for it, just write your list next to each pocket. There are two secure vinyl zippered sections with gussets so you can keep all the required tools, notions, or other things together so each project is ready to go.

Using a heat erasable pen, all the information can be ironed off when the project is complete and it is brand new again, waiting for the next project name to be written on the “label”. There are also handy pockets on the back for patterns and a heat erasable pen, or whatever else you may need to keep with the project at hand.

17) Fast and Easy Hobo Bag by 4GirlsDesigns
This style of bag is so popular and is perfect for the beginner sewist. We love this style of bag, especially for the summer season when so many of us are normally traveling. The depth of the bag ensures room for your wallet, sunglasses, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, camera, even a poncho or light jacket. The VELCRO closure is easy to sew in and keeps the top closed. You even have pockets large enough for your phone, a map, whatever it is you need to have handy.

Bonus) Our exclusive printable Sewing Journal and Notebook
With 33 different sheets and 25 unique page designs, this Sewing Journal and Notebook will become the latest (and favorite) tool in your sewing supplies.

Pick and choose which pages you will need based on your project, and then pick from a page with the titles and prompts already filled in for you, or pick the page without the text so you can add your own headings, titles, and details. Many of the pages come with and without text so they are totally versatile.

This sewing journal has been designed especially for those who sew bags, purses, accessories, and home decor projects. There are still pages for garment sewers too of course, including garment project pages and design pages, and pages for recording measurements. But bag sewers will particularly enjoy using the hardware inventory pages, the project costing worksheet, and the project and pattern notes.
