I have a little purse I purchased at Macy's a few years back and I just love it. It's compact with a nice zipper closure to ensure all the contents don't fall out. I use it when I take my granddaughters to places like the children's museum and the zoo. It is just the right size for a cell phone, sunglasses, keys and some cash.
I decided to 'copy' the bag and created this little cutie based on the measurements of the store-bought one. The only difference is that I put extra pockets on the outside of my homemade version. That way I can keep things I want to get at quickly in the pockets without having to take the time to zip/unzip the bag.
I really love how it turned out so I made a bunch for my craft fair tomorrow. Hopefully I can sell a few or at least get some feedback on them from my customers.
