Three Great Free Bag Patterns

There are so many free patterns on the internet that it can be overwhelming. Therefore, I’m here to tell you about 3 of my favorite free bag patterns.

1. Pyramid bag, I adore this pattern, and it is so easy that I’ve made a few many.  Available with an excellent tutorial at Loganberry Handmade.  After you’ve made one per her instructions, experiment with different sizes.  So cute and so fun!

2. Tote bag.   The instructions for this “market tote bag” at Bijou Lovely are very clear, with great photos.  I’ve made several of these because they are an excellent, practical size. Of course, I’ve modified this pattern, but it is great just the way it is on her site.

3. Noodlehead’s Open Wide Zippered Pouch.  Anna Graham is the queen of bags of all kinds, and there are some great free tutorials on her site, Noodlehead.  Of course, she has excellent patterns for sale, and I’ve bought some of those, too.  Anyway, go try her free zippered pouch tutorial if you’ve had doubts about zippers.  Her instructions and illustrations are clear and easy, and you CAN do that zipper!

I’ve made a bunch of these in different sizes, as well.

Please tell me if there are free online patterns or tutorials that you love!

  1. Great bag projects! I’ve been given one of those little triangle shaped bags and was intrigued with the construction method. I typically “don’t” make bags, but every once and a while the need arises. Market totes are becoming a necessity and I like to use deco weight or twill fabric for sturdiness. The pattern from Bijou Lovely looks easy to follow. Thanks!

  2. Not to early to start on Christmas gifts. Thanks for the idea. I have a few zippers I have not used that is lingering in my stash. It reminds me of how we used to save zippers that still worked out of old cloths so many years ago. We are not as frugal anymore.

  4. Fun totes. I have a couple of those, but I use my free tote bag tutorial when I need to whip one up (just did two Frida Kahlo bags that were a success).
    Happy Fourth of July!
