i should mention now, that i'm not much of the clutch or handbag type person- i like the single bag i own on its gigantic, body crossing strap, laying one third down my leg, sloppily flying around as i run and frolic in search of my next adventure.
which isn't really a bad thing, until your school's super beast orchestra gets invited to play as entertainment at the state executive mansion for the billion-jillion kids that come and take a tour, and you need a bag that doesn't get in the way of your viola case which is about 5/8 of my entire five foot and a half inch-ish existence.
so i spent most of my day before the performance thinking of some method of carrying all my goodies and entertainment for the hour long bus trip it takes to get there, and this is what i came up with:
a super simple last resort instant purse that required no sewing for the sake of my klutzy hands and short attention span! i don't even know if this counts as a purse, or something. if not, i'm sure someone'll bring it to my attention
1. get a handkerchief, and stick all of your goodies in the center of it.
2. snugly tie two ends on opposite corners together, and make a square knot (i'm not sure if i'm using that knot here, but i'd recommend it
i totally lead by example.)
3. finish by tying the remaining two ends together with another square knot, just this time at the VERY tips, and VOILA! instant purse! just stick your arm through the hole you
sitting on my doorknob,
and the action shot! (there's no hall light, whoops.)
