The Perfect Purse Free Purse Pattern & Tutorial

This was the first free purse pattern that this very talented designer made. She still loves this bag and what is great she lets you make her free purse pattern just as it is, or if you want to have a go you can use her ideas to design your own bag.

She called this purse the PERFECT purse as it met all her criteria. She needed lots of room, pockets, zippers and straps just the right length. She also needs to keep her phone on the outside in a pocket with a zipper so she doesn’t lose it.
