Another New Style

I made this purse last week, and have been using it since then, trying to decide if I needed to make any modifications in the next one.  So far, the only thing I need to change is to make the center pocket a little shorter, as when my cell phone is all the way at the bottom, it’s a bit hard to reach when it’s ringing.

The front is accented by the pieced flap (this one is Amy Butler fabrics) which is bound in bias.  The bias binding is repeated around the edges of the bag itself. 

Inside, there are three pockets, two larger outside pockets and a smaller inside pocket.  This design keeps everything organized.  There’s plenty of room inside for what you need without being big and bulky to carry around.  Here I have wallet, cell phone, keys and GPS.  The flap closes with a magnetic snap to keep everything secure.

From the side, you can see just a peek of accent fabric.  I used nickel rectangle hardware on the strap, but future models will also have a slider to adjust the strap length.

I’ll be making a few more of these this week to stock in the Etsy shop, so keep checking back!

    I think this is exceptionally cute AND handy! Just the sort of thing I’m going to need when I’m diaper bagging for two.

    Very nice! I don’t even carry a purse, but I found myself staring at the pictures to try to figure out the design.
