This is my purse. Cute on the outside.....
...the inside is a mess!!!
For the past several years I have thought everyday, "I should sew something to keep all these papers organized in." I woke up this morning and decided today was the day!! There are a lot of pouch tutorials out there. Instead of finding one that would work I just created my own. Here is how you can make one too!!
1/3 yard outer fabric
1/3 yard lining fabric
44" Therm O Web Heat n Bond fusible interfacing - light weight
Begin by cutting your outer fabric and lining fabric 12 1/2" x 21 1/2"
HERE.) I wanted the pouch to be firmer. Cut 2 pieces of your fusible interfacing 12 1/2" x 21 1/2". Fuse them to the wrong side of your 2 pieces of fabric.
Trim the excess. Make sure you trim so it looks like this:
Now layer right sides together and pin. I used a generous 1/4" seam. leave a 2"-3" opening on the side to turn.
Clip the rounded corners and the square corners. Turn and press.
Fold the bottom half up 7 1/4" and pin in place. Top stitch around the pouch.
Sew your button on.
Fill with coupons & now you are ready to shop!!
OK - I really love this! Can't believe it took me so long to make one! You can make this project in under 30 minutes :)
Here is a little peek into my purse and all my little pouches:
I also have a first aid kit that I forgot to photograph. How many pouches do you have in your purse?
