I am swamped this week trying to get ready for Sydney's 4th birthday party this Saturday. My little princess is having a ballerina birthday party at the house. She is so excited to have her friends over and I am too, just a little overwhelmed right now. With that said, my friend Heather from The Mommyhood will be guest posting for me today so I can keep working on party stuff. I met Heather at Blissdom this year and we just instantly clicked. She is wonderful and I know you are going to enjoy her blog. Thanks again Heather!
How many times have your kids handed you a candy wrapper and there’s no trashcan in site? Where does it go? Well, it goes in your purse, of course. This is just one of the many ways my purse has become a garbage can over time. I’m always fishing around in there for my phone or a pen and can never find what I need. So I decided to make my own purse organizer to help solve the problem. Here’s how I did it:
1. Measure the length of the inside bottom of your purse.
2. Cut the fabric to be double the length so the organizer will fold in half in your purse. (I used liner, but if I had it to do again I think I would just use a fabric that is thicker and stiffer and not line it).
4. Tri-fold the fabric and sew the right and left sides to make one large pocket.
I didn’t want a very deep pocket for my phone, so I added a horizontal seam to make that pocket shorter.
6. And now you have a custom purse organizer!
Is your purse a garbage can? How do you keep it organized?
