I’ve downsized my handbags from the REALLY BIG ONES I used to carry into work.
I’m looking for a mid sized, tote-ish leather bag and of course, there is no way I will ever find an organizer to suit me, so I’ll
have to make one myself. I need a couple of slender pockets for pens, a couple of pockets for lipstick and mascara, a pocket for business cards….I’ll monkey around with a prototype before I commit to digging out my sewing machine. My idea is for this to be just a recangle of fabric that will drop into my handbag, leaving room for my planner and wallet in the middle. I hate digging into a dirty bottomless pit, looking for a pen.
I’ve looked at the ones on the Net and none of them are quite right. So off I go, figuring out what I need and how to make it work. I’m thinking of some cute, bright batick fabric from my quilt stash. (I don’t quilt, but I do like to make up hot pads or placemats. Sometimes I’ll hem the edges of a square and put that in a basket for a little gift.
