I was wondering if anyone knew of a pattern for 1920's style purses, wallets, bags, totes, etc. Or if anyone had a tut...or just an idea...anything would be great!

much love

I'm envisioning velvet and drawstrings - evening purse.  Is that what you had in mind or something else?  Any photos or sites of places to see more of what you are wanting to produce?

Expensive, but real: http://www.oldpatterns.com/

This lending library looks great: http://www.vpll.org/library/index.html

And, of course, the everfabulous eBay.

As for free stuff -- that might be a little tougher to find. Good luck!

Twenties bags were usually fairly small, often of simple construction, then embellished-beaded and fringed and whatnot. Perhaps a bead embroidered or bead woven bag in a deco pattern, something like the 'lightning' patterned one here would suit.

cmoore, thanks for that link.  The real things are so gorgeous, so expensive.  The clutches were cool too.  Ornamental Resources (beads and findings)  has some really neat  purse frames, but none so elaborate.  The pictures at decodame got me thinking of putting some elaborate ribbon as trim for a clutch.  Thanks!

you could check eBay, if you haven't already.

I want to find one of those big snap things for the top of a little carpet-bag clutch.

anyone know what i'm talking about? its like the little snappy do's that close at the top, like on an older change purse. I can't really look for one until I can figure out what to call them.  Huh

This might be what you are looking for.

There are a couple of 1917 bag patterns to crochet here

Even if you don't crochet, they could give you a basic idea of shape or style.
