  • pattern
  • quilted material
  • sewing machine
  • thread and other obvious items


  1. The first step is to select the pattern of the bag or purse you desire to create. I started my creation with a simple country brief case… nice.
  2. After picking out the pattern, go shopping for great deals on quilted materials that are reversible. At this juncture, some people believe they know everything and do not choose a reversible fabric and instead use two different fabrics. Do not commit this error, you will be thankful later.
  3. After selecting your fabric and pattern for your purse or bag, you are now ready to start. The next step is to cut out the purse or bag you intend to create.
  4. As you browse in the malls or shops for supplies and materials that you will use in creating a bag or a purse, make sure that you will be using a soft plastic for the bottom portion of the bag. This is so that the bag will be stable enough. Also, keep in mind not to purchase or use anything for the bag that cannot be washed or laundered.
