Here are purses I sewed last weekend. Nothing like a great fall/winter purse like these.
But here's a trick. My invention--I call the portable pockets "Halfsies" because . . .
Take the Halfsie in your hand, and stuff the bottom upward . . .
Use your finger tips to slid the bottom of the halfsie upward to form a double lined-double pocket to store smaller objects inside the bag. It's a great purse organizer.
The halfsie is a perfect spot to tuck away important receipts rather than having them swim around in your purse.
Or to hold reading glasses.
One of side of the halfsie holds my little camera, and the other side holds my cell phone. I stuffed my tube of lipstick in the corner. They tuck down nicely into the folds.
Here's the purse loaded and ready to go. Water, coin purse, kindle w/ear phones, and halfsie containing a cell phone, camera and lipstick. It is so convenient to reach inside to grab your phone, or camera, or glasses. You can find what you need just by "feel"--and you don't have to fish around for it.
Above is an example of a personalized purse.
