Purse Accessories and Organizer
Last Thursday was my June meeting of Sew What! community sewing group. Our lesson was on how to make a purse organizer, which completes the second part of the purse accessories set.
This photo shows the purse organizer filled with essential items that we all need to carry around with us. Mine holds my wallet, a pen, a pencil, a sunglasses case made from the same fabric, and is part of the purse accessories set, my cell phone, and a tissue holder made from the same fabric as part of the coordinating set.
The purse accessories set includes a quilted cosmetic bag, as well. It could fit into a pocket, if you should choose to make a pocket to fit it, or just use it as a separate accessory.
The purse organizer is made with a very stiff interfacing and two layers of fabric. Pockets are stitched according to the size of the items you want to store inside your purse. When the purse organizer is filled, it can be rolled up to fit almost any size purse. You can then lift it out and place it in another purse and not have to change each individual item when you want to change purses.
