Some time ago I posted a question in the help forum for purses, bags, etc., but never got any responses. I needed a wallet to carry in a tote bag so I could just carry a wallet instead of the whole tote bag. I normally carry a good sized healthy back bag (Ameribag) and love it, but carrying a tote full of stuff and a big purse is ridiculous. Anyway, I found a wallet/purse pattern called Favorite Things Wallet and used it. I love bright colors and the fabrics I chose for this are certainly "BRIGHT!" There's a zipper pocket for change, two long slot pockets for bills and receipts, an accordian card holder, cell phone pocket, pen pocket, etc., etc. There are a couple of things I will change on the pattern (stiffer interfacing for the outside) the next time I make it but it certainly fills the bill for me. How do you like it??
