It has been waaaaay too long since I sat down to write a post. And, I am so excited to say I have two new patterns that released last week– my first table runner pattern and a new cross-body bag. You can take a peek at the Flower Power Table Runner and The Olivia Bag on my website. More on that soon!
Back to the topic at hand. Does your purse look like a garbage dump? You know, it starts out okay. You make a brand new purse, with all those great pockets, one for your phone, one for your keys, one for a pen or two, a pocket for your sunglasses. That should take care of it, right?
And it does for awhile. But over time is another matter . . . .
So, what clutters it the most?
For me, it’s kleenex, receipts, and shopping lists and other notes. How about you?
This post is first of a “series” of posts covering small projects you can make to make the inside of your purse look as amazing as the outside.
First on the list is a kleenex holder. I initially was going to design a little kleenex holder but I found a tutorial on the web that is just amazing and exactly what I wanted so I started just sewing!
This tissue holder tutorial is from Barb – I don’t know Barb, but I love her Halloween and Christmas kleenex holders and her instructions are easy to follow. This is a quick project, great for gifts.
***UPDATE*** Please note that I changed Barb’s directions a bit to make the tissue holder you see in the picture. I used a 5-1/2″ x 8″ piece of fabric for the interior and a 5-1/2″ x 7″ piece of fabric for the exterior.
cheap frugal at our house–and for convenience–I just grabbed 10 tissues and folded them myself. Easy!
Just fold the kleenex tissue in half along the crease, then fold two more times.
Next up will be a tutorial for a receipt holder to keep all those holiday receipts from taking over your purse.
Leave a comment about what makes your purse messy. I would love to hear from you.
