75+ FREE Modern Purse Patterns to Update Your Look

modern purse patternsUpdate Your Look with a Modern Purse Pattern

Our readers really, really, really like purse and bag patterns.  I try to do fresh, new, and modern purse patterns at least every couple of weeks in between doing other fun garment projects like the Hoodie, the Easy Long Cardigan, and the Bralette.  You should check these out if you want some easy and fashionable garment patterns.

However, if you're like many of our readers, you may only want to sew bags.  There's definitely nothing wrong with that and I want to do the best I can to make you happy.

For someone who likes sewing bags, it seems like there can never be enough free bag patterns.  One of the categories that seem to be of great interest in modern purse patterns so I set about to see just how many I could find out on the internet.

There are a lot of free modern purse patterns out there but here are the best 75+ I could find.  Please enjoy and happy sewing!

A very nice list of patterns, but two of them are not free. The Jewelry Purse and the Pockets A Plenty purse from So Sew Easy were only free during a limited time when you offered them. They now have a price.
