Wow ladies, the next time you’re cleaning out your purse, take a good look at everything you stash in there. Do we tote around a bunch of stuff or what!
Having what we need within reach and safely tucked in our bags is great…but now…how to find what we need when we need it! Things like lipstick, compact mirror, comb/brush, essential cosmetics, lip balm, mobile phone, a pack of tissues, wallet, coin purse, our keys…on and on it goes.
Here are several lovely projects that are designed to stash and organize all kinds of gadgets and necessary items, some pretty clever ideas and many are easy to make too!
Using a purse organizer will help keep things in order and dare I say it…maybe even make room for more items to fit! lol. Tip: I find these especially useful for carryon luggage when traveling.
These projects are suitable for sewing skills at all levels…Beginner to Advanced. Enjoy!
