Another bag? ! ? . . . . let's call it a purse
I looked online and found a bunch of different tutorials. But this is the one I found to be the easiest at Sew Mama Sew. I took the old zipper out of my purse that was dying and put it in here (that is why it is pink). I was quite impressed with how easy it was and quickly it came together. I LOVE having it in my purse. I always hate not having a zippered pocket for those things we like to hide. Of course I made a million other pockets for things I don't really want to have floating around the bottom of my purse.
After I got done making this I decided to make a gathered clutch. I used the tutorial on Noodlehead to make a matching clutch. I made it really simple and instead of making the cardholder and divider I just added a simple one card pocket. I'm not going to use it for a wallet, just to hold items that I don't want wandering around the bottom of my bag. Like JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby and Kohl's coupons.
