In the Designer's Words: "This tutorial shows you how to make a two tone leather purse from an old leather jacket. It's simple, costs a fraction of a bought one and would make a gorgeous Christmas gift!"

Whether you are just learning how to sew or just looking for free sewing patterns, this free purse pattern is the sewing project for you. The Two-Tone Leather Purse Pattern is a simple, free sewing pattern that makes a fantastic DIY gift or a charming bag for yourself. One of the best things about making your own purse patterns is that the patterns are usually relatively simple, allowing you to sew easy straight lines and quick corners.

This free sewing pattern can be created out of leather or faux leather. No matter which material you decide to use, be sure you have the proper sized needle and one that is sharp enough to pierce the thick material.

My old purse is almost falling apart. The zipper is ruined and it has several lipstick stains that I can't get rid of. It's nice to know that I can turn an old jacket into a purse. Thanks for this.

These are too cute! I am definitely a beginner sewist; so, this might be a good, simple project to try!

I love these two tone leather purses and this tutorial makes it so easy to follow. I am looking forward to making many for my grown daughter. She does not like to carry full size purses and the clutches you buy are so expensive. I like that you can make it your own one of a kind. Great way to use left over fabric. Has anyone used this tutorial yet that has never made one? How did it go?
