Free Evening Bag Patterns

What’s not to love about a bag? My husband raised his eyebrows when I recently made the comment “I need a stylish upcycled bag for Tuesday” (gumtrees upcycled revolution event in London)

Bags can be so simple to make, so it can be quick and easy to whip up a bag to go with an evening outfit.

Here are three of my favourites – all made from only one metre of curtain fabric! I have chosen a shimmery silver fabric, with a design which is easy to embellish and compliment.

Hillarys Blinds Curtain Fabric


My first bag is a clutch – they never got out of fashion. Choosing purple as a second fabric I blanket stitched round each flower with a toning purple embroidery thread. A clutch is perfect for your keys, lipstick and purse:)

The second bag is Japanese in design. As it hangs from your wrist this is perfect for keeping your hands free. This bag has a lining which picked out the various greens in the centre of the flower designs. Using invisible thread I have sewn beads into the centre of each flower – this adds a touch of glamour.

The third design is a a simple bag, decorated with a sparkly bow. The fabric is again enhanced with beads. The right choice of fabric makes such a difference to the finish of a bag.
