Hey bag makers! With just 2 weeks left until Christmas, we thought we would do a fun pattern round-up for you! This year we are rounding up the best patterns to customize for your loved ones! Read on below to get the inspiration for your next custom bag make!
Polly Crossbody Pouch
The size of Polly and the flap lends itself beautifully to make it custom! Rosemarie used the Polly pattern to make a Yoda themed flap and Abbe added a few cutout butterflies to make her flap pop! Find the Polly Crossbody Pouch here!
Layla Essentials Purse
Layla packs a lot of punch on the inside so why not have a little extra fun on the exterior! With a little bit of appliqué, Tiffany turned the exterior of her Layla into a Star Wars theme! Find the Layla Essentials Purse here!
That Flap Saddlebag
This saddlebag pattern was designed to be customized but why not take it a little bit further! Cut up the flap applique and piece it back together for a truly unique creation! With 10 appliqué options to choose from, you’re sure to find a design to customize! Here’s the tutorial for How to Split your Appliqué! If you want to have even more fun, check out Tiffanys That Flap Saddlebag on Instagram to see how she customized hers! Find That Flap Saddlebag here!
This little purse is perfect for customization! With that little opening in the center of the flap, you can get creative with your fabric choices! We love how Adliya did her whole Peekaboo Purse in cork! You could even do a photo on fabric on that middle section for a special grandparents gift! Find the Peekaboo Purse here!
This sling bag is another pattern that was made for customization! Piece together that front panel with many different fabrics and embellishments like Milagros did for a truly custom look! Find the Summertime Sling here!
Feature Me Everyday Tote
While this tote was made for featuring a statement print in the center, it’s also perfect for customization! We have a whole blog series of quilt block patterns you can sew for the middle or come up with your own! Check out the Feature Me Everyday Tote – Feature Series for more! Leslie used a gorgeous flower block in hers and Aimee used a rainbow block! Find the Feature Me Everyday Tote here!
Which pattern are you most excited to customize for the holidays? I am thinking of appliquéing a silhouette of my niece on the flap of That Flap Saddlebag for her for Christmas!
