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!
Kleenex Holder – pile of tissues
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.
