Quilted Handbags

posted on 11 December 2009 | posted in Handbag and fashion Articles


If you have a creative flair and a passion for sewing, why not have a go at making your own quilted handbag? They are amongst the most popular and simple to make; allowing you to choose your own unique shape, size and colour.

Quilting is a sewing term which refers to 2 pieces of fabric sewn together with a piece of wadding in the centre. You can sew a pattern into the fabric and the wadding will puff out to show off the design. Try to select a good quality fabric which is machine washable - good for light summer colours. You will find many patterns for sale at good haberdashers and specialist online shops. If this still sounds too difficult for you, why not buy a simple ready made quilted bag and add your own decorations to personalise it? This would make a lovely project for a mother and daughter to share.

The complete finished quilted bag an be bought in a variety of styles, with all the expected bag features such as pockets inside and out, mobile phone pockets and change purse. You can choose an open top style or a zipper closure, a flap with a loop and button closure or a drawstring bag with top closure. There seems to be no end to the selection available. Remember also that a quilted bag would make a lovely gift for a girl to add to her handbag and evening bag collection.
