Handmade Handbags

While I’ve never really thought of myself as a handbag person, as it turns out, I’m quite drawn to them. I tend to under-purchase in general, so I tend not to buy myself too many. I have made myself a couple of bags before, but they’ve never turned into my regular handbag. I use one to hold WIPs and another I made to carry some supplies to church. It might just be time to make another because I’ve found some great looking patterns! Check out these beautiful handmade handbag patterns!

This Audrey Hobo Bag by Hooked on Patterns caught my eye most recently. I love the slouchy hobo bag style with the sturdy textured stitch at the top. This looks like it would make a lovely bag to transport projects!

I am also very drawn to this Window Frost Handbag Crochet Pattern by Outstanding Crochet. I love the lacy flower motif. It looks so delicate and could easily be dressed up or down.

Some people don’t have time for all the crafty stuff. For them, there’s this made to order Crochet Lomo Camera Purse from the shop Meemanan. If you’re really keen on making one yourself, you can find a pattern for a similar camera purse here.

The Kiara Bag crochet pattern from the shop Ruby Webbs is a lovely textured handbag that comes in 2 different sizes, one of which looks large enough to hold a laptop! I love how sturdy it looks!

I guess all of these patterns have been crochet up until now. If you haven’t quite ventured into hooking, the Horseshoe Cable Handbag pdf knitting pattern from the Etsy shop LOTCP is a lovely looking cable-knit pattern for a handbag. If you’re looking for some wooden bag handles, check out some of these.

Another lovely knitting pattern for a handbag is this Cherry Blossom Felted Bag Knitting Pattern from the shop Splendid Sparrow. If you’ve never felted before, a handbag is a perfect project to experiment with that! Size isn’t quite as important as a garment, so if it ends up a little smaller than anticipated, it isn’t the end of the world. And isn’t that lovely cherry blossom embroidered embellishment lovely?

I hope you’ve found some inspiration for some handmade handbag patterns. Please pin it for later or to share with your friends!
