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 which I designed 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..."The Perfect Organized Purse"!

Purses are such a girly thing...you just can't have enough. Some ladies have a thing for shoes and some have a thing for purses. I personally love them all!
