Dear Sewing Superstar,

Sewing gives us the option to, ahem, tailor our projects just the way we want them. And the ever-present, ever-useful bag is no exception! From a stylish purse with a refined look for an evening out to the perfectly practical upcycled tote bag, We Like Sewing has a delightful collection of stunning bags for you to put on your to-sew list.

Beginning and experienced sewists alike will find satisfaction in making any of the bags in our Patterns for Purses: Tote Bags & More Collection. Make yourself something new, or get sewing to stock up some gifts for future occasions.

Topping our “looks more difficult than it really was” list is our Stack and Slice Quilted Tote. This project is perfect for beginning quilters who are feeling a little adventurous and for more experienced quilters who’d like to make a project freestyle.


Right as Rain Umbrella Tote

Right as Rain Umbrella Tote

The Stack and Slice technique — also known as Stack and Slash — lets you improvise your pattern. Through creative layering and cutting, you’ll stitch together a one-of-a-kind tote bag that comes together almost seamlessly (OK; not exactly, but you take my point). Pick a bold color combination and be prepared to collect plenty of compliments when you take this bag out.

And as you mull over each project in this, know that every pattern comes with a detailed template, pattern notes, and a complete list of the tools and materials you need to succeed. Now then, let’s get started!

Need another great project to piece together? Try the Right as Rain Umbrella Tote. That broken umbrella you thought was destined for the dump? No more! Harvest the fabric and give your old umbrella a new lease on life as a foldable tote!

This is upcycling at its best. New sewists looking to up their sewing game will love this project. Going green has never been cuter! You can even add a Velcro strap to make the bag foldable. Tuck it into a tote bag so you always have an extra bag on hand!

Truly Timeless Leather Tote Bag

If you’re looking for a bag on the fancier side, consider a little black bag. The Truly Timeless Leather Tote Bag is the perfect project for sewists looking to up their stitching game with leather or vegan leather. You’ll also get practice inserting rivets to add both strength and visual interest to this classically-styled black bag.

Of course, no one says this bag has to be black; you choose the colors, we’ll show you the style. Stop settling for cheap and trendy bags and the store and stitch up a timeless bag all your own!

Got fabric scraps? Have we got a project for you!

Here’s a great way to use up your fabric scraps and make adorable, unique gifts at the same time. Our Shooting Starts Rainbow Zipper Pouch is totally customizable. Choose your color scheme and shoot for the stars! This is a quick pattern to make, so you might as well make a few while you have your sewing machine out. The hardest thing about making this pouch will be picking the fabric to showcase the star.
