Inspired by fellow craftsters, I finally dove into my leftover Amy Butler stash and whipped together one of those nifty Pursekets.  I change purses almost daily, so this is going to be sooooo convenient!  Thanks to all who posted these ideas in the first place; I'd never heard of a Purseket until Craftster!

And all rolled up, ready to toss in my purse:

From left to right, I was able to fit 2 lipsticks, eyedrops, address book, days-o-the-week vitamin box (yes, I'm a dork who has to have my daily vitamins), coin purse, 2 pens, sunglasses, and inhaler...all in this handy little contraption!

Okay, this is the first time I've actually been able to figure out what a purseket is (can't say I really tried that hard to figure it out, but, you know....) and I'm in LOVE!

Now I need one, and it will give me an excuse to have 8,000,000 purses!  Faboo

That looks great!

Wow! You sure do have a lot of stuff in there.

The one that inspired me is here:

Hers is made out of vinyl...very smart; I just didn't have any laying around and was too cheap/lazy to go get some.  I used a heavy interfacing and 2-ply canvas fabric for the solid-colored back.  If I make another one, I'll probably try to find something even heavier so it doesn't slouch at all.


If anyone else gets around to making theirs...please post pics!  I'm going to make another one for my math teacher hubby to store all his classroom calculators in!

Awesome idea, I have purhased 3 or 4 pursekets and LOVE them. When i got my first one i thought DAMN this is just too easy to make, but with the lack of sewing machine i bought more.

Do you make then and sell them ?
Do you put some type of plastic in them to keep them stiff?
