Looking for a pattern for a small bag, like this
Hi! I'd like to make a few of these cute little purses as gifts for my daughter and my nieces, and I'd like to find a pattern for it..or at least just some basic instructions on how I might do it without a pattern. The bag is aproximately 5in and 7in tall, if that makes a difference. Thanks.

That looks right, Miss Tia. Also, to make the purse, you could either make a rectangle twice as wide as you wanted the purse and sew the bottom and one side shut, or you could make it twice as tall and fold it in half the other way and sew the sides together.

Or you could knit it in the round and seam the bottom.

And then if you did it in the round, could you divide the stitches in half to do a 3-needle bind-off for the bottom?

Although if it was done in the round with stripes, you'd have to do the jogless jog to avoid the obvious spiral effect when you did the color changes.

I'm working on a similar bag at the moment.
It's my own pattern, but very simplistic. I'm using a technique that I used for my cell phone pattern found on my blog...

Using size 5 needles, I used SugarnCreme Cotton in Ecru

CO 56
*k1, slip 1* always slipping last stitch
Work till desired length.
Seperate work as follows
First stitch to one needle, second stitch to another needle, you will find that you've created a 'pocket'.
Flip work inside out.
In order to make my strap without seaming, I put two stitches on scrap yarn, and cast off the rest of the front edge, placing two stitches plus two more from the back side on scrap yarn. I then cast on to my right needle two additional stitches and began k1, p1 for the flap, when I reached the last two stitches of the last row, I casted on two additional stitches, and put the remaining two stitches on the scrap yarn, leaving four 'live' stitches on either side for straps.
Continue working the flap in seed stitch of k1, p1, till desired length, bind off in pattern.
Pickup live stitches on one side of bag and work the k1,p1 on those till desired length and graft to live stitches on opposite side.

Simple cute painless
You could easily incorporate stripes, by adding a contrasting color as you knit the body, and not make the flap at all. The varieties are endless.
