Making Your Own Purse Organizer-Video
If you are tired of rummaging through your car or bag for your cell phone or keys, perhaps an organizer would remedy that for you. You don’t have to be an organized person to have one, it makes sense for convenience. Guys can also make one for their own bags, having instant access to cell phones, glasses or keys. Clean out your handbag to make room, by going through everything to see what is no longer needed, it’s surprising how much you will find. The goal is to only carry what is necessary for that day.
Making your own purse or handbag removable organizer is a great idea for bags that don’t already have one inside. You can move the organizer from one bag to the other, without having to take your necessities out. If I see a bag I really like but there aren’t any compartments inside, I use one or two makeup bags to substitute. By making your own, it’s customized specifically for what you carry examples are eye glasses, mobile phone, lipstick, medication, a pen and paper and other personal items. You simply measure them to fit, and cut the fabric accordingly. Having two sizes is ideal for small or larger handbags and the pockets can be made on the inside or outside of the organizer, depending on your preference. Choosing your own fabric design or color isn’t as important seeing that it’s inside the bag, but you can make it any way desired for your personal taste.
Make Your Own Organizer
The following video I chose is perfect because you can make this organizer in less than 20 minutes. The fabric featured is felt, having a thickness and strength to last. You don’t have to finish the edges because felt doesn’t fray which is an added bonus. Before you start, it’s best to watch the whole video once over to be familiar with the steps, and to get all the items needed ready to go. The steps are detailed and easy to follow starting with choosing your size, and a small one is being made in this tutorial. The felt clings together for easy sewing as it won’t slip but stay in place. A zipper foot is used in this video but I have seen others where it’s an option and not needed, the regular sewing machine foot is fine.
It’s soft and washable, as long as cold water is used. You only want enough water to cover the organizer otherwise a large amount of water will distort the shape. You can machine wash it on delicate, but don’t throw it in the dryer. It will shrink and cause pilling.
