The other day I found this pattern for a purse organizer. I thought it was neat, so I saved the .pdf file to make it later.
Then I caved and made it yesterday. This is how it turned out:
The organizer before I put everything in it. Comb, lip balm and lip gloss, lotion, handkerchief, pens, checkbook, pocket knife, calculator and business card holder.
This is how it looks all rolled up. I can roll it several different ways though, to fit certain purses better.
The pocket with the handkerchief in it is wide enough that if I start carrying a cell phone again, it should fit. I didn’t measure my phone to make sure, but I don’t have cell service right now so it doesn’t really matter. My wallet is so fat that I didn’t bother making a pocket for it. This organizer rolls up small enough that there’s more than enough room in any of my purses for both the organizer as well as my wallet.
I ended up liking the pink and red together much more than I anticipated. There’s still about a half a yard of the pink left, maybe a little bit more. I thought about making a purse to match it, but we’ll see.
