Purse Organizer

The new website and blog is finally up! Thanks for your patience during construction. To celebrate, I'm posting this new free pattern. It's simple and easy, and so functional. I've noticed that unless I sew a pocket into the lining of purses, for the most part they are one giant bag. Well, I have a bunch of stuff, cell phone, lipstick, lip balm, hand sanitizer, biz cards, receipts, and more and it all gets jumbled together. I remembered seeing a purse organizer on tv and found it on the internet, then thought it would make a good felted project. It was so fast and easy to crochet it up, then I threw it in the washer a couple of times, blocked it and it was good to go. It works great. I can load all my stuff in it, roll it up and stick it in my purse, easy. Plus, it's so easy to change purses now. Don't know how I lived without it before. Download pdf instructions here.

What a fantastic idea! I hate continual rummaging around in my bag, I am going to give it a go.

I LOVE THIS! I've done a few felted bags - without linings - and find I don't use them as much as I might due to the jumble that results. Thanks so much for generously sharing this pattern.

This is great! Do you know about how much yarn it takes of each colour? I would love to get started on it. :)

Thanks - you're so sweet! I used a couple of skeins in my stash ... less than a full skein each.

That is so cool! I haven't had success felting in the past, but this is worth a try.

I LOVE this idea and mine came out gorgeous, I actually made it for a friend. However...my dimensions were somehow off a bit and the pockets weren't deep enough, I guess.
So, my advice is when you make it be sure before you stitch it up whatever you want to put in it, you're sure you are folding it up high enough!
Otherwise, it was simple and so much FUN to make, my first felting project, YAY!!!
THANK YOU!!!!
