Quilted Front Flap Purse FREE Sewing Pattern and Tutorial

Quilted Front Flap Purse FREE Sewing Pattern and Tutorial

This satchel style bag has a curving side gusset that adds structure and creates a sleek profile. All the fabrics used were standard cotton lawn weight, but with the addition of fusible fleece, foam, and standard interfacing, there’s enough body for the purse to hold its shape as well as provide the firmness to carry-off the heavier metal locks.

What you'll need:

  • Sewing Machine and standard presser foot
  • Zipper foot
  • Janome Edge Guide foot; optional but great for topstitching and edge stitching
  • ONE Dritz® decorative lock
  • TWO 1″ Dritz® D-rings; the D-rings should coordinate with the purse lock

  • ½ yard of one coordinating 44″+ wide quilting weight cotton solid for the lining
  • ¾ yard of 20″+ wide fusible foam interfacing
    • NOTE: You need the extra yardage to be able to cut the side gusset as one piece.
  • ⅓ yard of 20”+ wide fusible fleece
  • Scrap or ¼ yard of 18″+ wide medium weight interfacing
  • 2½ yards of piping in a color to accent the exterior fabric
