One thing I’ve come to love is a purse with pockets. It seems that I can never find what I’m looking for in the bottom of my purses that have no pockets. Trying to find a pen or pencil is especially difficult. Those little things are forever eluding my searching fingers. This new purse I’ve made has all the pockets of my previous purse that I’ve loved to death plus some new ones.
On one side, I have a zippered pocket for my keys. Look here for a tutorial on sewing a double welt zipper pocket.On the other side is a larger pocket just perfect for my sketchbook or larger items.Inside there are two pockets, one for my cellphone and one for pens and pencils. I’ve put some elastic in the top of the phone pocket. It’s just snug enough to keep the phone from sliding out at inopportune times, yet soft enough to easily remove the phone.
I know I’m going to love this new purse as much as my older version.
