Purse organizer recipe

Posted by on November 18, 2006


A while ago I made the most useful thing for all bagaholics. This is nothing new, in fact there are some great pictures and tutorials all over the place but you know me, I’m always one step behind. I decided that my purse was just a mess and changing purses almost every day to go to work and then to go out with the kids, I decided I needed to make something to help keep all my goods a bit better organized. I searched the net and found the coolest thing.
Say hello to my new new purse organizer.


Here she is all rolled up and ready to go in my purse.


I know there are plenty of tutorials already out there for this but because I wrote up the pattern for my own records I thought I would publish it here too. Linda, one of my best blogger buddies of all time, sent me some gorgeous fabric ages ago and I haven’t wanted to cut into it until now. (You know, I’m so careful using the good stuff, I don’t want any of it to go to waste) This just seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally use it.

I have the tutorial in PDF form, if you want it, leave me a comment or email me and I’ll send it to you. You can download it from here.

Please don’t leave any more comments asking for the tutorial unless you would like to thank me and leave your blog address-I love to see new crafty blogs.

    Where are the directions for making one? I have a rough idea; so you use interfacing? How long is it, etc? Looks like it will fit best in a tote bag. Right?
