No, not this one. I like it okay, but the handles, which I bought, are not holding together. Also, I just made it in such a hurry that it isn't finished like it ought to be on the inside and the shape is rather boring. I do like these colors, though!!! But, I used them all up on this purse. So......
I always make these pocket book organizers so that I can swap my necessary things very quickly from purse to purse.
These are great. because they fold to different shapes to fit most pocketbooks. And,,,,,,my favorite thing about them is, everything has it's own little compartment, and I can see everything at one glance..I used coordinating fabric samples to tie it all together, but like I said, this organizer can be used with almost any purse.
This time, I made a separate little money purse that has a Velcro closure flap and a little tab so I can pull it out more easily. I have always just put my money in one of the open pockets, and while that worked ok for the folded bills, my change was always hard to dig out and sometimes didn't go in the pocket that I intended for it to go into.
I've only carried this purse for a day and a half. So far, I like it. The strap is just the right length to go over my shoulder and it actually stays there. I have very sloped shoulders these days, so that can be a problem. The purse if very light weight, yet sturdy. I did use interfacing between the layers and that brown suede fabric on the bottom and the strap is very stiff. I've already had some compliments on it. Now, if only the colors were purple, yellow, and green, I'd like it better, but there weren't any more samples in those colors. I may have to go to a furniture store and see if I can get some other colors that I like better. There are lots of fall and wintery colors, so I'll be set for those seasons.
I took my sewing machine to the sewing machine doctor yesterday. I'm leaving her for a few days to have a complete checkup and a little rehabilitation. Since I won't be sewing for a few days, I may not be blogging either. But, I will be reading your blogs.
