Make an easy Bubble Bag with your choice of handles in two sizes. PDF purse pattern tutorial includes step by step color photos. Also includes paper templates for sewing..

The purse-size Bubble Bag will hold all your stuff with an outside patch pocket and 3 inside pockets. The large Bubble Bag is ideal for overnight trips, to use as a beach bag, or as a day bag to carry shoes and a change of clothes.

Instructions are given for a covered-cord, tubing, or rope handle. If you use a tubing or rope handle, you'll have enough fabric to make twice the inside pockets!

You are purchasing a pdf sewing pattern for the purse, not the purse itself!

This pattern uses rotary cutting and step-by-step assembly to make it EASY! It also includes paper patterns.

The finished size of the purse-size is 12” wide, 10” high, and 5” deep. The large is 15" wide x 13" high x 5" deep.

Fabric Requirements (Purse-Size/Large):
Outside Fabric – 1 yd / 1 yd
Inside Fabric – ½ yd / 3/4 yd
Medium Weight Interfacing (Pellon 931td 22” wide – 2 yds / 2.5 yds
Cording, Rope or Tubing - 5 feet (or 2 yards if covering with fabric)
Magnetic Purse Snap (1/2” or 5/8”)
Permanent Fabric Glue (Unique Stitch)
If using Tubing, you will also need 2 zip-ties.
If using Rope, you will also need masking tape.

You will download the pdf file after your payment is processed. You will receive an email from Etsy with download instructions!

You will need Adobe Reader to open the pattern. This is available for free download on adobe.com.

Fabric Requirements are given for the Rotary Cutting method. However the file also includes paper patterns if you'd rather pin and cut with scissors. You may need a little more fabric using this method - layout your pattern pieces carefully!
The pattern may not be duplicated in any manner unless for your personal use. You may use this pattern to make and sell purses at venues such as Etsy or craft fairs, as long as you are a small (one or two person) business.

This pattern was extremely easy to follow! The pictures are great and the explanations are very helpful! Very impressed with this. I have almost finished my purse. The part that takes the longest is getting everything cut out and interfaced. The rest went very quickly!

Love this pattern! So easy to follow and very functional. I even added Velcro straps on the sides of the unicorn purse so my granddaughter could carry her Barbie dolls. Thank you!!
