I'm always looking for the perfect purse. I've spent hours agonizing over purses in stores. I finally decided to attempt making what I thought was the perfect purse. I knew I wanted lots of pockets and organization so that I could just reach in my purse and find exactly what I was looking for.
I thought long and hard and came up with this design. I absolutely love it! I store my cell phone in one of the two pockets on the back and I usually carry a bottle of water which fits perfectly in the other pocket on the back. The front pocket is long so that you can put your receipts in it. I don't know about you, but I've always got a lot of paper receipts and other notes that get lost in my purse. This pocket solves that problem. I also keep my coin purse in this pocket for easy access.
The inside has 8 separate pockets for your wallet, checkbook, if you carry one, charge cards and gift cards for another pocket, your glasses in another pocket and a few pockets left over for whatever you want to carry. The center of the purse is wide open for your makeup bag or any extras.
This pattern is very easy to make and can be made with just about any
fabric. My birdhouse purse was made from 2 placemats that
I didn't use anymore, but didn't want to get rid of them because
they were so cute....so, voila...I made them into a purse. LOL!
I hope you find this purse to be as great as I do.
FINALLY, "My Perfect Purse"!
