Looking for an easy tutorial to help you get comfortable with your sewing machine? You’ve come to the right place then! This Fat Quarter Purse Tutorial will guide you through the detailed steps to making your very own purse from assembling the free pattern to the final stitch. For you more seasoned sewers out there, use the free pattern as a jumping off point for endless additions and customizations!
Note that a sheet of felt is used in place of interfacing in the tutorial. We would still recommend that you substitute the felt for a good woven interfacing fused to the fabric first, such as ShapeFlex 101 and then use a fusible fleece on top. This make the bag both strong and soft and gives it plenty of body so it will keep its shape nicely.
