Purse Organiser Tutorial

My New Purse Organiser
by J.S

My bag is a mess! The bigger my bag the more stuff i collect inside it. Sometimes i have everything but the kitchen sink in my handbag. Well not anymore, this year is my year to become organised, well at least try. lol.
So i made myself a purse organiser now everything has a home, and i will be able to find my phone before it stops ringing.

Step 1:

You will need to cut out your fabric and interfacing. I like to have coordinating fabrics but you could use the same.

2 pieces of fabric : 8 inches x 26 inches
2 pieces of Interfacing: 8 inches x 26 inches

Step 2: Iron the interfacing to the WRONG side of each piece of fabric

Step 3: After you have the interfacing ironed on good. Place each piece RIGHT sides together, pin in place and stitch 1/2inch seam around all edges, leaving about 2-3 inch gap so you can turn it right side out.

Now very carefully (you don't want to rip your nicely stitched edges, turn you piece right sides out

Step 4: Give your organiser a nice iron. Now you will want to edge stitch all the way round the 4 edges.

Step 5: Turn the bottom edge up about 3 inches. And pin in place. Stitch along each short edge.

Step 6: Now this is where you have to look through your handbag and pick all the items you want to be able to find quick and easy. measure the width of each item and add 1 inch. So my cell phone is 2 1/2 inches wide, i would want to measure out 3 1/2 inches, and i just placed a pin in the place to mark it. Do this to every item.
Stitch up every pocket you made.

You now have a COMPLETED purse organiser. And it took about 30 minutes.YAY YOU!!
